Data Backup and Archive

TrueNAS Scalability

TrueNAS enterprise storage appliances deliver the perfect range of features and scalability for data backup, disaster recovery, and archive. Whether you’re a small business, school, or enterprise, there is a TrueNAS storage solution that fits.


Flexible interconnects from 1 to 100GbE provide maximum bandwidth and simple integration via iSCSI, SMB or NFS into existing environments. Design your systems to meet your disaster recovery objectives (RPO/RTO).


Grow a single system from 10 TB to 10 PB without purchasing additional controller nodes or expansion licenses. A single TrueNAS system can hold over 740 high-capacity disks. ZFS protection ensures you get capacity, speed, and redundancy without having to compromise.


TrueNAS simplifies storage in any backup software environment, integrating with Asigra, CommVault, Nakivo, Veeam and many other backup software providers. Native ZFS replication can also be used to efficiently backup one NAS to a remote NAS, significantly reducing the data transferred between systems.


OpenZFS provides all the mechanisms for long-term, efficient, and secure retention of critical data. RAID-Z ensures pool protection and global spares. Data scrubbing and integrity checks safeguard against corruption. File system encryption and Self-Encrypting Drives provide security and compliance. Unlimited snapshots makes it easy to travel back in time and defeat ransomware.


Asigra TrueNAS Backs Up the Whole Enterprise

Asigra Cloud Backup software is integrated with TrueNAS to provide a turnkey enterprise or MSP backup solution without the need for additional backup servers or VMs. Back up clients, cloud accounts, servers, and virtualization environments into a single TrueNAS repository. The agentless Asigra technology ensures rapid rollout to remote offices. With global deduplication and advanced ransomware protection, the award-winning Asigra TrueNAS solution is a comprehensive backup platform that’s also simple to deploy.

Cloud Backup is Simple

If you don’t have a second data center to back up to, TrueNAS includes the tools to back up your data to public or private clouds like Amazon S3, Azure, Backblaze B2, Box, and Google Cloud Storage. Pay for what you use with no upfront costs and no additional TrueNAS licenses.

ZFS Replication is Fast and Secure

Automatically archive or share datasets to another TrueNAS or FreeNAS with scheduled sync and replication. ZFS replication is based on periodic snapshots which can be taken at a chosen interval. The remote system can be quickly converted into an active system if the primary site or system is down.
