TrueNAS Open Storage Logo

More than one million FreeNAS and TrueNAS systems are deployed around the world, with many companies having hundreds of systems. TrueCommand is a “single pane of glass” application to simplify the scaling of data, drive management, and administration of all TrueNAS platforms.

Features

TrueCommand expands on the ease of use and power of TrueNAS systems with multi-system management via a Single Pane of Glass.

 

  • NAS Fleet Dashboard
  • Single Sign-on to all NAS Units
  • Customized Alerts and Reports
  • Rapid Fault Management and Diagnosis
  • Real-Time Data Collection and Analysis
  • Predictive Analytics to Maximize Uptime
  • Team-Based 24×7 Operations
  • Enterprise Security with Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Audit
  • Manage Systems Locally or from the Cloud

Simplified Operations

TrueCommand is a ZFS-aware solution allowing you to set custom alerts on statistics like ARC usage or pool capacity and ensuring storage uptime and future planning. TrueCommand also identifies and pinpoints errors on drives or vdevs (RAID groups), saving you valuable time when resolving issues.

Use TrueCommand Cloud – Software as a Service

TrueCommand Cloud is a secure and easy-to-use cloud service. Each TrueCommand instance is hosted by iXsystems in a private cloud and uses WireGuard VPN technology to secure communications with each NAS system and with each user or storage admin.

  • Subscriptions start at $6 per month for 30 drives and are based on the number of drives.
  • Each TrueNAS must run TrueNAS 12.0+ or SCALE for the Wireguard VPN capability.
  • Subscribe and setup TrueCommand Cloud with these instructions.
  • Get Started on iXsystems Portal
