True Protection

TrueNAS provides unrivaled data integrity protection by using the OpenZFS enterprise file system. OpenZFS is a next-generation file system in every regard from its self-healing bit rot mitigation to its flexible snapshotting and replication.

True Scalability

OpenZFS is a future-proof 128-bit “scale up” file system that is designed for decades of continuous use. TrueNAS grows from hundreds of GBs to 4PB per system and is designed to make the increase in capacity painless.

True Flexibility

TrueNAS offers you the flexibility of choice, providing SMB, AFP, and NFS for file storage, iSCSI and Fibre Channel for block storage, and S3-compatible APIs for object storage. Every common operating system, hypervisor, and application is supported.

True Performance

TrueNAS delivers a perfect balance of price and performance that puts many all-flash arrays to shame. It uses TrueCache™ to leverage RAM, flash storage and spinning disks for flash-like performance with spinning disk capacities and economics.

True Freedom

Originally developed at Sun Microsystems, but now Open Source, OpenZFS is an enterprise-grade file system that iXsystems has delivered to more users than anyone. We pride ourselves on working closely with the OpenZFS community to help make OpenZFS the greatest file system ever written.

The TrueNAS X10 entry-level hybrid array from iXsystems provides a low-cost alternative to legacy arrays.

TrueNAS X10 is a 2U chassis that supports 12 hot-swappable SAS HDDs connected via 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

The TrueNAS X10, an entry level enterprise-grade unified solution, can support 36 hot swap SAS drives for a total capacity of 360TBs. The TrueNAS X10 is powered by an energy efficient, but high performance Intel system-on-a-chip processor. It includes the complete FreeNAS feature set including in-line compression/deduplication, file and block protocols, flash-assisted read & write caching, non-disruptive software upgrades, snapshots, clones, replication, thin provisioning, self-healing file system, online capacity expansion, RAID protection, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, GUI, CLI, and REST API, enclosure monitoring.

The low $/GB of the TrueNAS X10 makes it a key part of a disaster recovery (DR) infrastructure. It is designed for core-edge configurations and enterprise workloads like file sharing, backups, and replication.

Like all the other solutions in the TrueNAS product line, there is a dual storage controller option to support high availability allowing for 5 9’s uptime.

The X10 can be replicated across the TrueNAS portfolio, making it an ideal edge device. Like the rest of the TrueNAS portfolio, iXsystems builds, burns and tests each system before shipping it to the customer.

Projected use cases for the new arrays include backup, big data storage and file sharing. It taps into a swath of underserved small and midsize business customers.

The TrueNAS X20 uses OpenZFS and offers lower latency, higher read/write performance, and unparalleled reliability compared to legacy M&E storage products. 

OpenZFS is a self-healing, copy-on-write file system that allows editors to protect their creative products from corruption, bit-rot, data decay, and computer or human error.

Businesses today demand more powerful, reliable, and flexible storage than ever before. To keep pace, IT departments must implement solutions that tax their storage budgets in order to scale storage along with the demand. Traditional solutions can create massively complex storage islands that are often expensive, inefficient, and difficult to manage. By contrast, TrueNAS offers a solution that combines the flexibility of unified storage, the performance and efficiency of solid state flash drives, the capacity of hard disks, the familiarity and simplified management of the FreeNAS user interface, and white glove enterprise support.

Every TrueNAS X10/X20 has a full range of file, block, and S3-compatible object protocols. Its unified architecture reduces deployment risks, conserves power, space, and cooling, and reduces possible failure points by an order of magnitude. Its hybrid storage pools and intelligent storage optimization allow you to maximize storage efficiency by accelerating ROI by achieving consolidation ratios of up to 2.5x. TrueNAS includes compression, deduplication, snapshots, and replication at no extra cost. Whether it is a primary file store, offsite replication target for business continuity, databases, or media storage, the TrueNAS X10/X20 fits your application. TrueNAS X10/X20 provides scalability, data integrity, reliability, and ease-of-management for business that never sleeps.
