- Hyperconverged Storage that Scales Up or Out
- Integrated Linux Containers & VMs
- Deploy as a Single Node or Cluster
- Designed for Hybrid Clouds
- Enterprise Support Options
Designed for maximum performance and high-density applications, the F-Series is our fastest storage available. With built-in high-availability and NVMe SSDs for the fastest possible throughput, the TrueNAS F-Series safeguards data for mission-critical operations where downtime is not an option while keeping data operations moving as fast as possible.
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.
Scale-Up or Out ZFS
OpenZFS with its excellent data management capabilities is the basis for all deployments. Scale-up by adding drives or scale-out by adding systems to a Gluster or Minio cluster. 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.
