FreeNAS Upgrades


ECC Memory

FreeNAS requires at least 8GB of RAM to take advantage of all the great features offered by ZFS. We also strongly recommend using ECC RAM to help prevent errors.

Hard Drives

Your data is only as good as your hard drives. Disk failures can and do happen so make sure you have enough redundancy and a spare drive to swap in.

Solid State Drives

By leveraging a read/write cache to optimize memory, you can achieve a significant performance boost for your storage.


The motherboard lies at the heart of your FreeNAS system. Choose reliable hardware to keep your data safe and online.


Upgrade your networking hardware for more bandwidth & faster access to your files.
