The flagship TrueNAS M-Series is designed to support TrueNAS Enterprise with high-availability and maximum performance in mind. Combining open source economics, hardware with high performance and reliability, and top quality support services, TrueNAS M-Series and TrueNAS Enterprise provide enterprise flexibility and scalability with trust and confidence.
The TrueNAS M-Series integrates the flexibility of unified storage, the performance of solid state flash drives, the capacity of hard disks, the simplified management of a powerful webbased user interface, and white-glove enterprise support. TrueNAS Enterprise inherits the rich functionality and open source economics of TrueNAS CORE and adds enterprise-class features and capabilities such as High Availability (HA), Fibre Channel, TrueCache® and VMware certification.
TrueNAS M-Series is available in four models. TrueNAS M30, M40, M50 and M60 provide unified file, block, and S3-compliant object storage and are available with single or dual-controller, hybrid, or all-flash configurations. Featuring multiple highspeed networking (up to 4x 100 GbE), system memory up to 1.5 TB, TrueCache NVDIMM and NVMe caching, and up to 25 PB capacity, the TrueNAS M-Series is ideally suited for heavy IT storage workloads, including virtualization, media production, high-speed file sharing, and backup.
The TrueNAS M-Series modular hardware architecture conserves power, space, and cooling while supporting multiple applications with its hybrid flash and disk storage pools. HA ensures storage services are not disrupted, while Intelligent Storage Optimization maximizes storage efficiency with typical data reduction ratios of greater than 2.5x.
The TrueNAS M-Series delivers high-performance, scalability, data integrity, reliability, and ease-of-management with Open Source economics — for companies that never sleep.
Enterprise-Grade Open Storage
Built to maximize storage capacity, performance, and uptime, the M-Series is the TrueNAS® flagship line of appliances designed with the flexibility to address an array of demanding storage requirements and adapt as needs change over time. With high-availability options and advanced data management tools, the TrueNAS M-Series safeguards data for mission-critical operations where downtime is not an option.
Performance & Scale without Compromise
All-flash or hybrid disk and flash? The M-Series can be both. Combining vast system RAM, NVDIMM, and NVMe flash as layered cache provides industry-leading read and write efficiency and optimizes the performance of the primary storage media. Flash pools are supercharged, and high-density disk pools deliver low latency flash performance at disk capacity and cost. Fusion Pools, comprised of both disk and flash together, deliver the best of both worlds. With up to four 100Gb/s network ports per controller, the TrueNAS M-Series is designed to move terabytes at maximum speed.
Storage You Can Rely On
The TrueNAS M-Series offers unmatched data reliability in both software and hardware. The OpenZFS file system is the last word in data protection with copy-on-write and bit-rot detection ensuring the integrity of your data from write to read. Dual controllers and high- availability options ensure over 99.999% uptime to maintain business operations and keep applications running around the clock.
Hardware Management: Simplified.
Servicing an M-Series system is made easy by the modular, tool-less hardware design. Additional integrated enclosure management capabilities save time and effort by providing graphical visualization of the system in the UI, making it easy to monitor the state of your system from a single screen. If performance or capacity needs change over time, it’s as simple as a non-disruptive upgrade to higher-end M-Series controllers.
Scale Up or “SCALE” Out
Begin building the foundation of your scale-out, hyper-converged virtualization infrastructure with SCALE or use Enterprise for high-performance, ultra-reliable local HA storage. Expand to over 20 PB on a single M60 head unit with support for up to 12 expansion shelves, or use TrueNAS SCALE to cluster over 100 systems together for massive capacity and performance.
Professional White-Glove Support
In the unlikely event that a failure does happen, you can rest easy knowing that all TrueNAS M-Series systems are fully backed by our US-based professional support team. Whether you need 24×365 support or on-site repair, flexible Bronze, Silver, and Gold support options are available to help you meet your goals.
Performance & Scale Without Compromise
Hybrid or AllFlash Array? With TrueNAS, you can have both. TrueNAS M-Series leverages industry-leading cache along with open source ZFS by merging DRAM, non-volatile memory (TrueCache NVDIMM), and flash (NVMe/SSD) with highdensity disks to deliver low latency flash performance at disk capacity and cost. With up to four 100 Gb/s network ports per controller, the TrueNAS M-Series is designed to move terabytes at maximum speed.
Self-Healing Data Protection
Data integrity is the name of the game, and TrueNAS leaves nothing to chance. In-flight data corruption is automatically detected and repaired before it ever reaches disk. Bit rot and data decay are identified and scrubbed clean. With TrueNAS, your data is always pristine.
Intelligent Storage Optimization
TrueNAS M-Series maximizes storage efficiency by offering compression, space-efficient snapshots, clones, and thin provisioning at no extra cost. TrueNAS Adaptive Compression (TAC) efficiently boosts performance while maximizing capacity. TAC intelligently adjusts its compression ratio without wasting system resources. Before data is stored, TrueNAS dynamically detects and compresses what it can and skips any data too inefficient to be worthwhile.
Unlimited Snapshots & Replication
Most storage appliances require additional licenses for advanced features — but not TrueNAS. Gain unlimited file version retention, restoration, and replication. Data is automatically protected against unintentional alteration, such as from ransomware or malware, with minimal storage consumption. Data can be replicated locally, remotely, or to the cloud for backups or disaster recovery. TrueNAS snapshots can also be coordinated with VMware snapshots. With TrueNAS, any data protection or disaster recovery policy is simple to implement and maintain.
TrueNAS M40, M50, and M60 come equipped with TrueCache NVDIMM; the fastest, most reliable, and low latency Write Cache available. TrueCache NVDIMM stores incoming data prior to it being written to the ZFS pool with its data protection. On High availability systems, each write is stored on the TrueCache NVDIMM of the active controller, then mirrored to the TrueCache NVDIMM of the standby controller. In the event of power failure or loss, TrueCache NVDIMM saves the contents of DRAM to its flash devices.
The M-Series is a 4U system with dual controllers. Each controller has NVDIMMs for extremely low latency write caching and there is a high bandwidth PCIe interconnect between controllers to synchronize the NVDIMMs. The controllers share access to 24 x 3.5” drives (HDD, SSD, RI-SSD) and also can share 4 low latency NVMe drives which can be used for metadata or persistent read cache.
