I have an old (not that old NAS. IOMEGA StorCenter PX4-300D. It's a 4 bay and I have 4 4-TB drives in it.
I bought it a few years back (actually like 8 years) and never used it. I initially initialized and formatted the drives when I bought it but as I said never used it. It's in perfect working condition. The issue is it's obsolete on their website and I can't find the latest firmware update. My question is do I use it as is or can I wipe out the OS on it and use something like Open Media Vault, FreeNas, etc? If so how do I go about doing that? and how do I get any compatible firm ware updates?

Any help is appreciated.

I'm not sure if I want to use it for home (personal) or business use.
