TrueNAS SCALE Overview
Open HyperConvergence that SCALEs
TrueNAS SCALE™ is an Open Source Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution. In addition to powerful scale-out storage capabilities, SCALE adds Linux Containers and VMs (KVM) so apps run closer to data.
OpenZFS and Gluster combine to enable scale-out ZFS capabilities with excellent data management. Deploy a single hyperconverged node in a home/office, or cluster nodes together for a highly scalable and highly available software-defined infrastructure.
Go Beyond Storage
TrueNAS SCALE provides simple access to the well-established Linux container ecosystem and makes application deployment easy. With support for KVM virtual machines, Kubernetes, and Docker containers, it’s easy to customize and add applications to suit a wide variety of needs.
Built on Open Source
TrueNAS SCALE is Open Source, based on Debian Linux, and free to download and use. With hundreds of thousands of testers and contributors, the TrueNAS community development model enables broader testing, and ultimately, a higher quality product, in addition to its unbeaten value. Join the “Storage Freedom” movement and enjoy the benefits of Open Source economics.
Manage Storage Clusters and Fleets
Cluster many systems together with SCALE and manage them all with TrueCommand. TrueCommand makes it easy to monitor and administer all of your systems from a single, easy-to-use dashboard.
