I want to run a single parity drive, and if I go with OMV I will use snapshot.


I currently have 4x 3TB + 1x 4TB + 1x 6TB + 4x 8TB (5400 rpm archive styles) + 256 GB SSD


The parity drive will probably be an archive 8tb drive, so it will be very slow. (I could potentially use 3x3TB to parity instead).



With that combination of disks traditional software raid (mdadm etc) and ZFS are off the table, they need matching disks. Another option might be SnapRAID and MergerFS, this is a pretty good guide. That guide is written buy the same guys who maintain the docker containers referenced earlier. The OMV-Extras repository will allow you to easily install SnapRAID and MergerFS on OMV, otherwise that guide steps you through installing it directly on Debain.
