FreeNAS vs TrueNAS

FreeNAS vs. TrueNAS

  1. The first difference is the software delivery method: TrueNAS is a purpose-built storage appliance while FreeNAS is freely-downloadable software that requires the user to understand storage well enough to select the correct hardware that is appropriate for their application.
  2. TrueNAS is commercially-supported, while FreeNAS is community-supported.
  3. There are performance and usability optimizations in TrueNAS that are specific to the hardware we use and therefore aren’t included with FreeNAS.
  4. High-Availability (failover) is hardware-dependent and only available in TrueNAS.
