Quote of the Month
“We were having trouble with our heavy disk I/O and low latency storage and needed something that could do the job required. TrueNAS has handled the task flawlessly. What we were looking for is something that had solid state performance. We looked at several vendors, but TrueNAS came with a lower acquisition cost, more storage, and better performance.”
