TrueNAS and FreeNAS can both support virtualization workloads. FreeNAS is great for development, labs, and other non-critical use-cases. TrueNAS is a platform designed for critical applications where enterprise support and HA are generally needed for production. TrueNAS also includes vSphere certification and vCenter plugins to reduce operating costs and complexity. TrueCommand provides the “single pane of glass” for simplifying the management of many NAS systems and replication targets.
