Raspberry Pi 2.5 Gbps OMV NAS Build Part 2 – the VERDICT!

Raspberry Pi 2.5 Gbps OMV NAS Build Part 2 – the VERDICT!

How does my 2.5 Gbps Raspberry Pi NAS compare to a dual 2.5 Gbps ASUSTOR Lockerstor 4? Find out in this video, the second part of a two-part series. I will explore the software on both NASes—ADM on the Lockerstor and OMV on the Raspberry Pi—and run some performance...
Raspberry Pi boots off an NVMe SSD, natively!

Raspberry Pi boots off an NVMe SSD, natively!

The Raspberry Pi can now boot off NVMe drives natively—assuming you have the right hardware. NVMe Boot is currently in beta, but will hopefully be available on all Compute Module 4’s soon! This is the fastest way to run a Raspberry Pi, but is it better than just...
FINALLY! Native M.2 NVMe on a Raspberry Pi – CM4 TOFU

FINALLY! Native M.2 NVMe on a Raspberry Pi – CM4 TOFU

The TOFU by Oratek is the first board I’ve had in hand that has a built-in M.2 slot so I can finally use a native NVMe SSD directly on the Pi, something I’ve been hoping to do for years! But it has a few other tricks up its sleeve. Oratek is a Swiss...
Hardware RAID for the fastest Raspberry Pi CM4 NAS!

Hardware RAID for the fastest Raspberry Pi CM4 NAS!

Finally, with a bit of help from some Broadcom engineers, I got full hardware RAID working on a Raspberry Pi. And I actually used SAS drives this time. Special thanks to Broadcom for sending me a controller card and storage backplane to test on the Pi, and for their...
Argon One M.2 Raspberry Pi Case – SSD on your Pi 4!

Argon One M.2 Raspberry Pi Case – SSD on your Pi 4!

The Argon One has been a popular case for the Raspberry Pi 4 model B. The newer M.2 version of the case adds a new trick: a built-in SSD slot inside the case! There are some caveats and things to watch out for, but watch this video to see my recommendations. Support...
