Take Command of Your NAS Fleet with TrueCommand™


April 30, 2019

NOTE: This is historical content that may contain outdated information.

Hundreds of thousands of FreeNAS and TrueNAS systems are deployed around the world, with many sites having dozens of systems.  Managing multiple systems individually can be time-consuming. iXsystems has responded to the challenge by creating a “single pane of glass” application to simplify the scaling of data, drive management, and administration of iXsystems NAS platforms. We are proud to introduce TrueCommand.

TrueCommand is a ZFS-aware management application that manages TrueNAS and FreeNAS systems. 
The public Beta of TrueCommand is available for download now. TrueCommand can be used with small iXsystems NAS fleets for free. Licenses can be purchased for large-scale deployments and enterprise support.
