Quote of the Month
“Before we moved to TrueNAS we used two different SAN solutions. Workflow performance between those two solutions and our single TrueNAS is like night & day; we found that protecting our data became something we could do four times each hour, instead of once each night. Implementing TrueNAS allowed me to sleep well at night knowing my data is safe.”
