Creating a NAS Box Using OpenFiler | Linux Magazine

OpenFiler is a NAS distribution that is created using rPath and is licensed under GPLv2 by Xinit Systems. While an open-source project, Xinit provides fee-based support as well as specialized versions and an administrators manual which you have to purchase.

OpenFiler started as a simple NFS distribution with simple administrative tools but it has grown to become much more than that. Currently it supports the following network protocols:

  • NFS (currently NFSv3)
  • SMB/CIFS
  • HTTP/WebDAV
  • FTP
  • iSCSI (both initiator and target).

Need to get hardware together to setup one of these for home.
