Hi Guix!

Has anyone had luck installing Guix on a NAS?
If so, which one?

If not, which NAS hardware would you recommend?
I'm looking for

- something as open as possible;
- 3-4 bays;
- lowest consumption possible;
- Btrfs support.

Any tips?


Ive always wanted a GnuBee which is very open. Idle power is 11.64 W. There is both a 3.5" and 2.5" version - it has a MIPS processor though. Also, I don't know if you can actually still order them anywhere:

Guix has some old support for installing on MIPS:

Otherwise, the very open Vikings D8, has 6 SATA 300mb/s slots, but perhaps not really what you are looking for and it's pretty expensive.
