DietPi vs Openmediavault

Post by dcaccount »

Hello,
I have used for months my Rpi3 with openmediavault as home ftp Server to have an ftp backup of the video recording.

Everything works but I am looking for a lighther OS.

My question is if DietPi is really lighther and less resource taking than openmediavault and therefore worth changing and reconfiguring the system.

Thanks for advising,
Daniele

OMV requires a webserver stack to function, DietPi doesn't. Due to this, and the many lightweight scripts/tools that DietPi has to achieve what you can do in OMV, DietPi will be the lighter (and more efficient) OS.

Either way, i'am going to be biased ;) Although, dont take my word for it, try DietPi :)
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.
