Overview

Manage Your Data Like a Pro

There are many compact NAS options on the market, but only one gives you access to the same tools used by enterprise storage professionals for backing up and sharing your movies, photos, VMs, and files from a single device. The small but mighty TrueNAS® Minis stand apart with unmatched power to provide your data with the protection and performance it truly deserves.

TrueNAS Mini Family Lineup
TrueNAS Mini Endless Possibilities

Endless Possibilities

Ideal for file-sharing, backup, multimedia processing and distribution, video surveillance, edge/remote office, development, personal cloud, and other small/home office & SMB applications.

Sharing is Caring

Easily create file shares, set permissions, and perform maintenance from a single web browser. The TrueNAS Mini supports all major file and block protocols and is designed to run quietly in any existing home or office environment. Plug it in and start it up, it just works.

TrueNAS File Sharing
Benefits of Data Protection

Don’t Just Store Your Data. Protect it.

At the heart of TrueNAS is the self-healing, enterprise-grade OpenZFS file system. Combined with advanced tools like built-in RAID, snapshots, encryption, and bitrot detection, TrueNAS Minis provide ultimate protection against data loss, corruption, and ransomware.

Mini but Mighty

Just because a NAS is small, doesn’t mean it has to be underpowered. TrueNAS Minis have the hardware horsepower to outperform any compact NAS on the market, and caching SSDs can be added to supercharge read and write performance even further. All while still remaining power-efficient and quiet.

The Preferred Drive of TrueNAS Mini

TrueNAS Minis come standard with Western Digital Red Plus hard drives, which are especially suited for NAS workloads and offer an excellent balance of reliability, performance, noise-reduction, and power efficiency.*

*Regardless of which drives you use for your system, purchase drives with traditional CMR technology and avoid those that use SMR technology.
