Recession-proof System Specials on High Availability TrueNAS Systems (While Supplies Last)
During these challenging times, keeping budgets under control is more critical than ever. Therefore, we’re offering two specific system configurations at special prices to answer the call. Both are high-availability and hybrid disk/flash systems, designed for 24×7 availability: the TrueNAS X10-HA offers 84 TB of redundant, entry-level enterprise storage, and a TrueNAS M40-HA is loaded with 1.5 PB. These systems are ready-to-ship in limited quantities and are available while supplies last. Click below for detailed information on each system.
Here’s what the experts at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) had to say about TrueNAS in their recent validation report: “The combination of ZFS, open source, and a lean sales force provides efficiencies that enable iXsystems to offer high performance, feature-rich solutions at high value price points. We calculated a significant delta. Based on our testing and analysis, we found that iXsystems can typically offer up to double the performance at half the cost of their major competitors.”
