Take Command of Your NAS Fleet with TrueCommand™

Hundreds of thousands of FreeNAS and TrueNAS systems are deployed around the world, with many sites having dozens of systems.  Managing multiple systems individually can be time-consuming. iXsystems has responded to the challenge by creating a “single pane of glass” application to simplify the scaling of data, drive management, and administration of iXsystems NAS platforms. We are proud to introduce TrueCommand.

TrueCommand is a ZFS-aware management application that manages TrueNAS and FreeNAS systems. 

The public Beta of TrueCommand is available for download now. TrueCommand can be used with small iXsystems NAS fleets for free. Licenses can be purchased for large-scale deployments and enterprise support.

    Wow, thanks guys, I have been waiting for this for years. Watching the video, I did not see an option to do remote upgrades. This would be a nice feature.

    Not mentioned will True Command be able to manage remote systems on client networks via a VPN link?

    I could not find in the docs if that product is meant to be Open Source.

    I see that “TrueCommand can be used with small iXsystems NAS fleets for free” but this does not help with understanding the licensing plan.


  8. Taylor C

    Fascinating project! Are there any plans to release as open source/provide source code Red Hat-style? Would be a great addition to all of iXSystems open source portfolio. Keep up the great work!

  9. Jose

    I have 4 freenas servers but one of them could not be reached by the truecommand server, how can I debug it? I’m sure that I’ve put the correct IP and password.

    Didn’t noticed SMART options for viewing and reviewing, getting updates on that like current stage of the drives etc. will be nice to see, if they are good to go or some of them is going to start failing, or going bad.
    This is most critical part of any NAS system will be nice to have in system like this.
