An Overview on FreeNAS 8

The release of FreeNAS 8 includes major architectural optimizations, a django-driven user interface, and ZFS - lending us some useful features like thin provisioning, periodic snapshots, LDAP and Active Directory authorization along with the most popular platform sharing protocols.

FreeNAS 8 retains enterprise-class services while eliminating some "Home User" functionality such as iTunes/DAAP, Bit Torrent, and UPnP. These features will make it back as third-party plugins at a later date.

You may have noticed changes to FreeNAS.org smile.gif

FreeNAS is based off of FreeBSD, if you really want torrenting, just...install the package. Also, WHS is.... :/ frown.gif :'[ I like my RAID volume making, plus ZFS = heart.gif

ofcourse i know what FreeNAS is
and i was talking about the UPnP stuff
but damn, their UPnP sucks, that was also a reason to switch to WHS so that way i can use Tversty or w/e its spelled

FreeNAS is pretty awesome, quick and easy to set up for a basic file server.

I personally still want to make a file server using the ZFS file system, seems like so much win, but I'd rather start from scratch and learn FreeBSD, and build the server up from there

I tried FreeNAS 8 RC2. I really don't like they took out TONS of features that FreeNAS 7 has.
I use Samba/DAAP and some other functionalities.

I don't think that it was a smart move to remove them and not have them for release.

GUI looks really clean. I couldn't get bit torrent to work on 7 but hopefully 8.1 will work.

Really? I didn't have much of a problem setting it up.
The only problem I did have was making block lists.
But there was a thread on the FreeNAS forums that helped me with that.
