TrueNAS has long supported disaster recovery (DR) scenarios. This blog attempts to address the various types of supported DR scenarios and their related workflows. TrueNAS is a storage platform with powerful ways to ensure data integrity and consistency between local and remote sites. ZFS replication is the fastest and best way to ensure the data transferred is intact. Rsync is useful for file sync but cannot be used for live data or block-level data that could change during transfer. Cloud sync supports user workloads that archive to or from mainstream cloud providers.
While TrueNAS 12.0 (CORE and Enterprise editions) continues its release march, we’re also busy getting the first version of TrueNAS SCALE into the hands of many tech-savvy users. TrueNAS SCALE 20.10-ALPHA is planned for October and will be codenamed “Angelfish”.

We were very fortunate to have Jim Salter of Ars Technica review the TrueNAS 12.0 BETA1 release as the “easy mode for ZFS”. We expected a tough and thorough review of TrueNAS CORE and that’s what we got. It’s also a very educational review, so we heartily recommend it to both existing FreeNAS and new TrueNAS users who are looking to use TrueNAS CORE.
