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.
