New issue is a compilation of articles, how-to’s, and case studies about the open source embedded NAS operating system developed by iXsystems
With the recent FreeNAS 8.3.1 release, there are plenty of new features to talk about. Readers can find articles on plugins, disk encryption, ZFSv28, and much more.
FreeNAS determined to be flexible, easy to manage, and high performing, at a price that can’t be beat
Network World recently assessed FreeNAS in terms of usability, features, and NFS I/O performance. In performance tests, the device under test was an iX-2212 server supplied by iXsystems. FreeNAS version 8.3.0-RELEASE-x64 was used in testing.
The iXsystems Titan 316J JBOD storage expansion shelf received a thorough and informative review by StorageReview.com, the authority on storage news and reviews.
The Storage Review team briefly discussed chassis specifications before running three sets of tests comparing performance and capacity. The first test measured sequential reads and writes with an 8k block size. The second test was also sequential and measured large-block transfer speeds. The third and final benchmark used completely random tests.
The FreeNAS development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FreeNAS 8.3.0-RELEASE.
This is a major milestone in FreeNAS development, bringing in the plugin system with ZFS version 28. Development of the FreeNAS 8.2 branch has come to a halt, as both ZFS version 15 as well as FreeBSD 8.2 are no longer supported.
