Quote of the Month
“When I had an issue or a question on TrueNAS I was put on the phone with a person very experienced with TrueNAS to answer my oddball and left field questions about highly unlikely use cases for TrueNAS. This was before I had actually bought anything from iXsystems and was still shopping around. It’s hard to find that kind of support up front.”
