tl;dr: FreeNAS Corral as it was originally released is being relegated to “TECHNOLOGY PREVIEW” status while we work hard to re-base its exciting new features upon the rock-solid FreeNAS 9.10 base.


As many of you diehard FreeNAS® users know, we released FreeNAS Corral on March 15th, and the initial Community response was largely positive. There was a lot of excitement around the updated UI and the VM/Docker support, especially. However, we’ve also seen nearly half of the initial users revert back to FreeNAS 9.10. User feedback about this drop-off has been clear: challenges upgrading from 9.10, general instability, lack of feature parity with 9.10 (Jails, iSCSI, etc), and some users experiencing lower performance than expected given the increased demands FreeNAS Corral has on system hardware resources. With the subsequent departure of the FreeNAS Corral project lead, we re-examined the features, benefits, and issues with Corral and have decided to revise our plan for its future.

Somewhat strange approach given today's software culture. Somewhat refreshing though, I suppose (well, the fact that they're swallowing their pride and admitting their new version is broken and isn't actually ready for mainstream use. They still never should have released it as a "finished" build in the first place).

OCN as of the last few years has been pretty gamer-centric. DIY NAS setups are a bit niche here now. That said I would attribute the lack of posts here mainly to two other facts:

1) Posted and bumped exclusively during work/school hours on a weekday. Basically, no one is on OCN at these times, and many of those who are here will be browsing without logging in from work/school computers and thus can't actually post anything.

2) The freenas corral thread from a few weeks ago already covered a lot of these issues. Obviously no one knew they would back peddle like this, but some kind of damage control measure was pretty much expected.

Ya, this is a pretty dramatic step, but it's a NAS. It needs to be rock solid.

Glad they are "doing the right thing"

 

Ah brings back memories of when I worked/slaved 70-80 hr weeks in IT.

Doing "the wrong thing" is what happened during my old companies (Fortune 500 co) last Disaster Recovery exercise. Our storage guy screwed up and didn't do his due diligence and save the Storage Frame settings for hundreds of servers to our remote DR site which is several states away. When the servers were being built at the DR recovery site, he cheated and, he logged back into the Corporate Live Datacenter which is a huge No-no during a remote DR exercise. Mgmt who is always invested in a successful DR exercise conveniently looks the other way of course....You see where this is going.:rolleyes:

 

It bit them all in the ass when Dr Death as we called him got his remote access Telnet screens on his laptop mixed up and reset the entire Storage Fabric that hosts storage for oh, 2500 server images/Mainframe(s)/AS400'(s) ....in our 16 Billion dollar revenue generating datacenter by mistake... Bye-bye company for 24+ hours...Off the Internet and 1000+ stores all on manual selling, no supply chain, marketing, finance systems...just dead. Everyone involved eventually got fired for that one i hear. :axesmiley

I have been looking at moving my FreeNAS to ryzen. With ECC support, the 8 core chips would be a huge upgrade from my quad core xeon. Great for plex.

I don't habeeb it at all, bibi. I'd rather run a NAS and stream my own lossless files. Quality and convenience...I want everything.

Don't understand how people are satisfied with lossy subscription based services.
