Gartner Believes That TrueNAS Should Be Considered When Evaluating Open Source Storage Software


December 8, 2015

iXsystems is pleased to announce that the TrueNAS storage array was recognized by Gartner as providing key benefits to enterprise clients in their 2015 Open-Source Storage Market Guide. Gartner stated that storage based on Open Source software, like TrueNAS, is ready for general deployment. Gartner felt that the rise of open-source platforms, which are backed by a large, innovative community of developers and vendors, like the FreeNAS community, is enabling enterprises to seriously consider open-source storage.  

We are thankful to these clients that use TrueNAS and believe like we do that Open Source technology will change the world through its process of open and collaborative innovation. We’re also thankful to Gartner and the users who have contributed to the millions of downloads of FreeNAS, as we leverage the contributions, feedback, and widespread testing of the FreeNAS community to improve TrueNAS.

We’re proud that TrueNAS was the only Open Source-based physical storage array listed by Gartner. They called out TrueNAS’ high-availability options, unified multi-protocol support of AFP, iSCSI, NFS, and SMB, and support of all common hypervisors including ESXi, Hyper-V, KVM, and XenServer. Gartner also noted that TrueNAS offers tiered support options for small businesses and enterprises. When you are deploying a unified and enterprise-ready storage array that is driven by Open Source, then look no further than TrueNAS.
