Don’t Forget FreeNAS

August 9th, 2010

PC Pro has a short article titled Don’t forget FreeNAS, in it Steve Cassidy explains why FreeNAS is worth investigating.

Steve says FreeNAS is worth investigating because it supports both of the two recent innovations that can raise storage usefully above the level of its misbehaving basic building blocks; a FreeNAS server can serve up and participate in a Zettabyte Filing System (ZFS) configuration, and it can act as either an iSCSI target (that is, presenting logical drives to a host or aggregation server) or as an iSCSI initiator (that is, collecting together a group of targets on some reachable subnet into a single large logical storage volume).
