Since FreeNAS uses ZFS, hardware RAID is of no use. The ZFS RAID engine benefits most from having full visibility into what each individual hard disk is doing. Hardware RAID controllers tend to hide that away from the operating system, and therefore away from ZFS.

So in summary, when using ZFS just use a "plain Jane" SAS or SATA controller.
