iSCSI Overview Tutorial | FreeNAS vs TrueNAS | 48TB FreeNAS Build | Issue #28

Hello FreeNAS Users,

The year may be winding down but we’re closing it out with a bang. In addition to a FreeNAS Mini discount, this month we release an oft-requested tutorial for iSCSI shares, our VP talks about the differences between FreeNAS and TrueNAS, and we take a quick look at one user’s 48TB FreeNAS build. Lastly, we’ve selected the best #MissionComplete stories for November.

Happy holidays from all of us,
The FreeNAS Team
