Adding SSD to Turris Omnia

There are two solutions how to add a SSD disk to a Turris Omnia board.

  1. Using mSATA SSD
  2. Using SATA SSD with a miniPCI SSD adapter

I tried to use m.2 SSD with an adapter m.2-miniPCI, but the Omnia board didn't recognize it.

mSata SSD

This is the simplest solution. You need just the mSata SSD.

SSD disk Kingston KC600 512GB mSATA

mini PCI module with SATA ports

This solution allows using up to 2 SATA disks.

You need:

  1. Mini PCIe 2xSATA 6 Gb/s
  2. Power cable for the disk
  3. Disks (SSD or HDD)

Power Supply Cable

Power Supply Cable for SATA disks can be connected to the Turris Omnia board and it's not a standard one. It consists of five wires.
