For the latter, I haven’t tried much storage-wise (mostly been focusing on other interfaces, and Windows 11 support)… but at this point in time, besides OpenMediaVault or rolling my own thing, does anyone know of any other good storage platforms that’ll run on arm64 / aarch64?
Has Cockpit/Houston been tested on arm64? Maybe I can be the first to try if not
While I haven’t done it yet, I actually thought of doing the same thing. I assume you would just use an LSI card supported by in-tree mpt3sas? I may have to set aside time next week to test out a few ideas as well. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Great article Jeff! There was a large bit of buzz around the PCIE support, but I hadn’t yet seen any actual implementations outside of yours.
I’d recently had a chat with the parents asking if I could toss a few bucks their way and put a remote repository on some sort of device in their house for an offsite backup of critical things. Initially, I thought I was going to be limited to a NUC or similar as I didn’t want USB SSD’s and a micro SD for boot.
This opens quite a few possibilities for a truly small footprint NAS. Maybe that Storinator Jr. isn’t so far off? Count me in for a preorder, but only if we can have custom faceplates that call it the “Geerlinator”.
Yeah, I know already Mirko Electronics (an EE I have worked with from Poland) has a design for a single and dual M.2 HAT that would make a tiny little board with RAID1 a possibility.
I’m also campaigning for someone to build something like the Radxa Taco but for the Pi 5 as a HAT. With PCIe Gen 3 it should be able to get more than 100 MB/sec through the network to disk without breaking a sweat!
