3 good solutions for NAS storage

True NAS.

On other occasions we have talked about some solutions for implement a NAS (Network Attached Storage) for storage on a network hard drive in a secure way and to be able to manage it. For this, there were specific operating systems such as FreeNAS, Xigma NAS, PetaSAN, Openfiler, SnapRAID, EasyNAS, etc. Many of them based on the FreeBSD OS.

Here you can meet three of the best alternatives that you have for your NAS and everything they can provide, so that you can enjoy the advantages of this type of storage available from any device with a network connection, such as a cloud for your particular storage of multimedia files, backup copies , or whatever you need ...

Between the the best secure operating systems for the management of your NAS I recommend:

  • THUNDERS- Formerly known as FreeNAS, it is one of the most popular and based on the FreeBSD system. It is open source and free, and is among the most downloaded (for a reason). It uses OpenZFS as its file system, has an intuitive web-based interface, has a RAID controller, supports encryption, and a flexible volume manager. That makes it suitable for both a home-grade and business-grade NAS. Download TrueNAS
  • Open Media Vault (OMV): This solution is based on Debian GNU / Linux, and is intended for home or small businesses. It is safe, has a simple web interface for management, supports RAID configurations, and supports various file systems such as ext4, Btrfs, JFS, and XFS. In addition, it includes many plugins to add functionalities.  Download OMV
  • rockstore: it is another NAS based on Linux, specifically in openSUSE Lepa, hence its name "rock", since this distro provides extraordinary robustness. It is oriented towards Btrfs (oriented towards home use), has excellent support for a multitude of protocols such as the previous two, supports compression and protection, RAID configurations, and an intuitive web interface. In addition, it has a lower requirement for hardware resources, such as lower RAM consumption compared to TrueNAS. Download Rockstor
