Other notable data optimization and protection features include data compression, encryption, deduplication, and replication, making it ideal for protecting business-critical data.
According to one customer review of TrueNAS Enterprise, “I’ve been a customer of iXsystems and TrueNAS products for over 8 years and two companies. Everything from their sales team to their implementation and support teams are top notch individuals. I highly recommend them to other colleagues as well when they are looking for a reliable, lower cost storage platform with all the major bells and whistles of the larger players.”
According to another customer review of TrueNAS Enterprise, “There is no other array we can find that delivers block-storage via iscsi and fibre-channel… file shares by SMB/CIFS/NFS… and S3-compatible buckets at this price point. The flexibility is unreal, and the management portals are thorough. Development of new features and squashing of bugs are continuous and frequent. Transparency on their forums is amazing.”
“TrueNAS was created to help organizations modernize the storage and protection of their data using a universal data platform that simplifies operations while providing the economic advantages and flexibility of open source,” said Brett Davis, Executive Vice President for iXsystems. “We are thrilled and honored that the experiences our customers have with TrueNAS Enterprise have received top ratings in the storage marketplace on Gartner Peer Insights, and we look forward to helping more organizations experience these same benefits.”
