Other highlights: the Mini has “powerful hardware” and is “feature-packed”. It also “averaged the highest Read speed tested, to-date, for any NAS at a blazing 111MBps.”

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.
