We’ll be taking a small series adventure into the world of TrueNAS. I’ll be starting with TrueNAS core (formerly FreeNAS). If you’ve never heard of TrueNAS(or FreeNAS), then let me explain a bit. Truenas is a self hosted Network Attached Storage solution. It is based on BSD Unix (I know the BSD folks will hate that I included Unix in there, but it’s simply for a bit more clarity).
TrueNAS has been around for years, and in it’s BSD form provides an extremely powerful, and very stable NAS platform. If you have been looking for a good way to consolidate your data and storage, then this may just be a free, open source, self hosted project you’ll love.
