The distribution features a special command line shell called "ovios shell" which strives to simplify system management.

Its excellent storage operating system.. Only thing you need to read the documentation. If you look at the memory usage, its an eye opener.

My practical experience.

I have tried this storage on OS first generation i3 cpu and 2 GB ram with 2 tb * 4 disk [ zraid2 ] and used usb as boot drive. Voila... The memory usage after enabling smb [ 18 users] , thin iscsi with 4 luns, and nfs - 20 shares, the system hardly used 800 mb ram with zfs. This is far far better than freenas or nas4free. Using this system for last 3 weeks, and i can assure you the performance is top notch.

My wish list - if developer can some how, add the web gui, it would be far better.

PS. in Nov 2018 - 2nd week we are going to try a ha cluster consisting 3 nodes.

I really like this small distro, seems to be very powerful with HA cluster and Replication enabled.
I like the way you can configure almost every aspect of the system with the 'options' command

Giving it a 9 because it doesn't have a graphical UI and the devs mentioned they won't build one.

Even so, it's still great.
