Introducing FreeNAS Corral: The World’s First Open Source Hyper-converged Storage Platform
The driving principle behind everything we do at #iXsystems is the belief that #OpenSource technology has the power to change the world through its process of open and collaborative innovation. With #FreeNASCorral (formerly FreeNAS 10), iXsystems unveils the next generation of the world’s most popular Open Source software-defined storage appliance. Only a new name could do justice to the sheer amount of change and new functionality here, including user-friendly virtualization and 100% compatible #Docker container support. FreeNAS Corral is 100% free and Open Source, building on the success of the FreeNAS Open Source project. FreeNAS Corral is fully committed to the Open Source development model, being based exclusively on Open Source technologies, and its storage services are designed to be fully compatible with FreeNAS 9.10. Its many enterprise-grade features include a rewritten middleware architecture, a modern graphical user interface, support for Docker containers, its own built-in hypervisor that supports virtualization with full ZFS integration, and a powerful command line interface that can be used to control every aspect of the FreeNAS Corral software.
