TrueNAS (formerly FreeNAS) is an operating system that can be installed on virtually any hardware platform to share data over a network. TrueNAS is the simplest way to create a centralized and easily accessible place for your data.
TrueNAS (formerly FreeNAS) is a free NAS (Network-Attached Storage) server, supporting: CIFS (samba), FTP, NFS, AFP, RSYNC, iSCSI protocols, S.M.A.R.T., local user authentication, Software RAID (0,1,5) with a Full WEB configuration interface. FreeNAS takes less than 32MB once installed on Compact Flash, hard drive or USB key. The minimal FreeBSD distribution, Web interface, PHP scripts and documentation are based on M0n0wall.
Chemputer Since the previous comment, FreeNAS, now called TrueNAS has added support for VMs and Docker apps (though to setup a Docker environment, you must do so manually.) It has support for a plethora of things that competitors such as unraid does, such as plugins (for instance Plex, Nextcloud, Jenkins, and many others), ZFS, NAS, SMB, iSCSI, etc., and a very nice web GUI.
