iXsystems Enterprise Storage
Protect critical data
Data continues to grow rapidly and protecting it is more demanding. TrueNAS provides unrivaled data integrity protection, scales to 4PB, unifies block and file storage, balances price and performance, and uses the open source OpenZFS file system. Customers can sleep soundly when they use TrueNAS.
The Benefits of Using TrueNAS for Backups:
- Self-healing file system with fast data access to ensure that every backup meets required service levels
- Accelerate backup and recovery with scalability and availability of storage resources while delivering on storage economics
- Supports backups of applications and VMs across diverse environments with its industry-leading speed and unified data access and certification with leading hypervisors
- Improve backups using a high performance and redundant file system based on OpenZFS
TrueNAS provides unrivaled data integrity protection for backup images by using the OpenZFS enterprise file system. OpenZFS is a next-generation file system in every regard from its self-healing bit rot mitigation to its flexible snapshotting and replication. It guarantees that you recover the same data that was written. TrueNAS can also encrypt data and replicate it remotely.
OpenZFS is a future-proof 128-bit “scale up” file system that is designed for decades of continuous use. TrueNAS grows from hundreds of GBs to 4PB per system and can be upgraded to a highly available configuration. With TrueNAS you don’t have to worry about data or its availability.
TrueNAS delivers a perfect balance of price and performance that puts many all-flash arrays to shame. It uses TrueCache™ to leverage RAM, flash storage and spinning disks for flash-like performance with spinning disk capacities and economics. It gives you simple and efficient recovery points for VMs and business-critical applications that can also be used for backups.
TrueNAS integrates with all major virtual machine environments, enabling you to backup hundreds or thousands of VMs or virtual desktops (VDI) in minutes.
Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware have certified TrueNAS and it supports the Veeam Availability Suite and Veritas NetBackup. TrueNAS supports other leading hypervisors, including KVM, Xen Project, bhyve, and others. TrueNAS has a vCenter plug-in and is integrated with VMware VAAI/Block and VMware snapshots as well as Microsoft CSV, ODX, and VSS. TrueNAS gives you instant snapshots of any VMware VM, allowing you to replicate a VM, protect and replicate it with TrueNAS, and restart it.
At iXsystems®, we are defined by Open Source. Everything we do, software we use internally, all projects we contribute to, and nearly every piece of software we develop is open. We develop FreeNAS, the Open Source version of TrueNAS. FreeNAS has been Open Source software since its inception in late 2005 and its 8.5M downloads make it the world’s largest Open Source-based software defined storage solution.
TrueNAS uses the OpenZFS file system to deliver enterprise capabilities such as snapshots, replication, encryption, and high availability at a price that is more economical than most other storage vendors.
