TrueNAS provides unrivaled data integrity protection 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. Your data is always safe with TrueNAS.
Students and administrative personnel can access multiple application platforms and resources using a TrueNAS Unified Storage Array. It is both a NAS and a SAN, supporting multiple block and file protocols. This gives you flexibility in your choice of applications, while reducing the number of storage arrays needed. Every common operating system, hypervisor, and application is supported. Instead of creating storage silos for your various applications you can use one TrueNAS storage array.
TrueNAS integrates with all major virtual machine environments, enabling you to deploy hundreds or thousands of VMs and virtual desktops (VDI) in minutes and run more operating environments on a single host from a single, hassle-free array.
Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware have certified TrueNAS. It is certified to support their hypervisors and supports other leading hypervisors. 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 the VM and restart it.
Education users need to get to data quicker and keep more of it. TrueNAS is highly automated and does not need expertise to setup and operate. TrueNAS gives you the same enterprise features at a more economical price than you get from other storage array vendors.
