FreeNAS 8 – cave man can do it

It’s FreeNAS. It’s easy. Set it and forget it with full fledge NAS you can’t find anywhere else. Well, it might not have DRBD, but for home/personal or even small business should be able to cope with rsync easily.

At least, this version makes me happy. My SS4200 comes alive w/ port multiplier; it just lives up to its potential.

Kernel log speaks louder than anything.

Thanks, FreeBSD guys enabling this feature. Thanks, FreeNAS folks developing nice-and-easy NAS.
