FreeNAS 0.7: powerful and not dead

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeNAS 0.7 is based on FreeBSD 7.2 and 
| includes a lot of file sharing protocols. This 
| way it can talk to all major operating 
| systems: GNU/Linux, the BSDs, Windows, and Mac 
| OS X. FreeNAS also supports several types of 
| media streaming protocols and can act like an 
| iTunes server. In addition, it supports iSCSI 
| and different levels of software RAID. All of 
| this can be managed from the web interface so 
| users don't have to know the FreeBSD commands 
| under the hood.



FreeNAS 0.7: powerful and not dead

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently, the FreeNAS developers have
| released version 0.7 of their FreeBSD-based
| operating system for network-attached storage
| (NAS). This is a major release, which
| introduces support for the ZFS file system
| among other things. Around the same time,
| fears were expressed about the future of
| FreeNAS as a BSD-based NAS but, in the end, a
| solution has been found.


FreeNAS Switching From FreeBSD To Debian Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| "FreeNAS, a popular, free NAS solution, is
| moving away from using FreeBSD as its
| underlying core OS and switching to Debian
| Linux. Version 0.8 of FreeNAS as well as all
| further releases are going to be based on
| Linux, while the FreeBSD-based 0.7 branch of
| FreeNAS is going into maintenance-only mode,
| according to main developer Volker Theile. A
| discussion about the switch, including
| comments from the developers, can be found on
| the FreeNAS SourceForge discussion forum.
| Some users applaud the change, which promises
| improved hardware compatibility, while others
| voice concerns regarding the future of their
| existing setups and lack of ZFS support in
| Linux."


FreeNAS ready for the next step â Future of FreeNAS

,----[ Quote ]
| - Volker, the current FreeNAS project leader
| and main developer, will create a new project
| called ââOpenMediaVaultâ based on a GNU/Linux
| using all its experience acquired with all
| its nights and week-ends spent to improve
| FreeNAS during the last 2 years. He still
| continue to work on FreeNAS (and try to share
| its time with this 2 projects).


FreeNAS 0.7 adds ZFS support

,----[ Quote ]
| The FreeNAS developers have announced the
| availability of version 0.7 of FreeNAS (code
| named Khasadar), a FreeBSD-based Network-
| attached storage (NAS) UNIX-like server
| operating system. FreeNAS includes a full Web
| configuration graphical user interface (GUI)
| and supports the FTP, NFS, CIFS (Samba), AFP,
| rsync and iSCSI protocols and software RAID
| (0,1,5).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
