Updated Mini Features ECC RAM, Eight-Core CPU, and Hardware-Accelerated ZFS Disk Encryption
iXsystems is proud to announce the third iteration of its FreeNAS Mini Home and Small Office storage device. The new FreeNAS Mini hardware has been completely redesigned to support the new features that have been added to the FreeNAS software over the past two and a half years. FreeNAS itself has undergone extensive development since the version shipped with the first FreeNAS Mini model in 2012, FreeNAS 8.0.1. The new models will ship with FreeNAS 184.108.40.206 or later, and have the performance necessary to serve multiple streaming HD clients over the same network, transcode HD video to mobile devices, support multiple independent FreeNAS plugins, and support more filesystem and media sharing protocols than ever before, all with lower latency and increased throughput.

SCALE was an awesome conference with 11 speaker tracks, over 2,200 attendees, and many open source projects represented. The entire iX team gave it rave reviews across the board. On Saturday, the expo floor was non-stop from 10-6 with everyone at the booth kept busy by answering questions. As usual, the red blinky horns were very popular and those who knew to drop by the booth early in the day were able to sport theirs during the rest of the conference.

Statistics aren't kept as the conference is completely free and open, but estimates range from 6k people to 10k people. Nearly everyone there had a technical background. There were numerous awesome talks that ranged all across the board. The atmosphere was very pleasant, very geeky. It was a total geek conference thrown by geeks for geeks.
While there aren't as many shiny new knobs to test out this release cycle, one thing is for certain: bugs are being uncovered and killed at an alarming rate. Recently, the team has been on a crusade to avenge fallen systems out in the field with the aid of our Redmine bug tracker. There's actually too much to cover here so instead I'll give you a brief rundown on what my experience was updating FreeNAS 8.2.0 to 9.2.1.

This past weekend, the NYCBUG held a one day conference in downtown Manhattan. This was the fifth NYCBSDCon conference organized by the user group in the past 10 years.
The venue was at the same location where NYCBUG holds their monthly meetings. The layout was ideal for the size of the audience (~100) as it allowed everyone, including those manning booths in the expo area, to see all of the presentations and to mingle between presentations. Since the venue was a bar which was dedicated to the conference for the day, food and drinks were well taken care of, giving attendees plenty of time to meet and catch up with other attendees.
