FreeNAS vs Openfiler Review Forgets that FreeNAS can do iSCSI

October 7th, 2008

The Linuxbsdos.com website has a good review of FreeNAS compared to OpenFiler.

In the conclusion they write: “The main difference between FreeNAS and Openfiler is that one is a network-attached storage (NAS) server, while the other serves as both a NAS and a SAN (Storage Area Network) server. The SAN feature of Openfiler is what makes it appealing to enterprise and business users.”

The reason for this is that the reviewer didn't know that FreeNAS also has iSCSI target capabilities and they only list iSCSI initiator in the feature list of FreeNAS.

Just to set the record straight: FreeNAS has iSCSI target as well as iSCI initiator features and can act very well as a SAN server.
