What is the best open source NAS solution with ZFS support to run on a 4GB Raspberry Pi 4 (Quad-core ARM Cortex-A72)? I’m planning to use it for off-site mirroring of a FreeNAS server.

@Ertain
Tired the NasBeery on 64bit Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. The installation script and the web interface works fine but some features (update/health monitoring, etc.) didn’t work for me out of the box. More importantly there is no easy way to change the ACL permissions, Samba configs, etc. and although none of the storage pool and data sets were set as read-only, I couldn’t write to the. I spent a couple of hours but couldn’t fix it. I’ll look for a more flexible solution instead.

@meisam I tried it out, too. It worked okay for me, but I kept having problems with power consumption, and I wanted to do something with NFS.

@Ertain Next I'll try just ZFS on Ubuntu and manual config of everything. :crazy:
