Understanding How OpenZFS Keeps Your Data Safe
Veteran technology writer Jim Salter wrote an excellent guide on the ZFS file system’s features and performance that we absolutely had to share.
Here’s what the experts at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) had to say about TrueNAS in their recent validation report: “The combination of ZFS, open source, and a lean sales force provides efficiencies that enable iXsystems to offer high performance, feature-rich solutions at high value price points.
