OpenBSD as a full-featured NAS system

In this presentation I'll explain how OpenBSD simplify your task if you want to setup a full-featured NAS.

In my case, the NAS has the following features: - full encryption file system - transfer via NFS (for Linux and BSD machines) and sshd - implement a time machine-like system for end users' files - how to backup this NAS on a 2nd disk and make sure we do not have bit rotation - implement Dnla to present to present the multimedia content of this NAS to any DLNA devices (TV, ...) - How to transform this NAS into a music daemon via the Music Player Daemon. Thanks sndio, this NAS is connected to a Cambridge Audio DAC and an HIFI audio system.

I'll share my expertise in terms of Hardware for such NAS.

I'll highlight how to implement all those features and how OpenBSD facilitates this setup.
