Omnia? The Turris Omnia is quite a nice (although a little pricey) OpenWRT-based router from CZ.NIC. It provides a fairly powerful CPU, relatively unconstrained eMMC space, and quite a lot of hackability (some revisions even have GPIO ports to play with). It runs a modified version of OpenWRT, named TurrisOS.
The problem A few years ago, I built a custom NAS for my storage needs, using a cheap Intel SoC (J1900 chipset) and a (much pricier) mini-ITX small form factor server tower.
