FreeNAS 8 Released

May 2nd, 2011 1 comment

FreeNAS 8 has been released. For those who don’t want to read the rest of the announcement you can download it from:

FreeNAS 8 should be installed to a USB stick or Compact Flash device. It requires a device of at least 1 GB in size. Unlike FreeNAS 0.7, the OS drive can not be used as a component for a volume, nor can it be partitioned for sharing.

  • FreeNAS 8.0-RELEASE supports NFS, CIFS, AFP, FTP and TFTP as filesharing mechanisms. It also supports exporting devices via iSCSI as an iSCSI target.
  • Active Directory or LDAP for user authentication.
  • The ZFS and UFS2 filesystems are supported. ZFS is the primary filesystem and enables usage of many features, including quotas, snapshots, compression and replication that are not available in UFS2.

Note: Upgrades from freenas 0.7x are unsupported. The FreeNAS 8.0 series has no way to import configuration settings from 0.7 versions of FreeNAS.
