In an effort to continue the evolution of free and open software, FreeNAS Leadership is now working with Microsoft on a brand-new platform. Early this morning, Microsoft reached out to FreeNAS Leadership with a proposal to build FreeNAS 10 on an arm-based Windows 10 device capable of storing nearly half a petabyte of data. To accomplish this feat, FreeNAS 10 will utilize NTFS, Microsoft’s recently open-sourced filesystem, bringing FreeNAS better ACL support than ever before!
Easiest setup, ever.
Featuring an easy-to-use, point & click graphical user interface with bullet proof syncing done by directly wiring systems together via thin-net 10base2 coax cabling.
“There are very big things planned for the future of FreeNAS. FreeNAS 10 will feature a dramatic overhaul of the user interface, completely rewritten underpinnings, and a re-base on FreeBSD 10.x. Overall, it will be far more responsive and intuitive to use, feature many more Enterprise level storage features, and offer greatly enhanced reporting and monitoring options. We think long-time FreeNAS users will be quite impressed by it.
We are also releasing frequent incremental updates for FreeNAS 9.3 while the community waits for FreeNAS 10 to hit its initial release milestones in 9-12 months. We promise the wait will be worth it!”
