Hello, World!

Hey TrueNAS Community!

Welcome to the newest section of the TrueNAS Community forums, “TrueNAS as VM Storage.”

This section of the community is focused on discussion about using all versions of TrueNAS as a storage target for hypervisors. This forum is for discussion about TrueNAS as shared storage between hypervisors for virtual machine (VM) disk storage, and not “Virtualized TrueNAS” or having TrueNAS act as a VM.

Information about non-hypervisor-specific TrueNAS tuning and best practices can be found in the General Discussion forum, such as:

  • Insights into pool and vdev design
  • Sync writes, and ensuring the safety and stability of data writes
  • Network design for IP-based storage solutions (NFS and iSCSI)

Whether you’re just getting started, evaluating alternatives, or happy with your current hypervisor and want to share your experience and tips, we want to hear from you.

If you’re already using a hypervisor with TrueNAS as a target, let’s hear about your setup and use case in one of the subforums below!
