What is FreeNAS

With Enterprise-grade features, and an license to create a RAID storage array for backups, replication, and file sharing. You will be able to set it up for internal, or external use.

FreeNAS is meant for small home business, or anyone that would like to back up their devices onto one machine. From work documents, to movies, music, and more. You can even share with family and friends.

What is TrueNAS

TrueNAS is for businesses where accessing information is more critical. TrueNAS is Enterprise ready, and uses the same ZFS based storage arrays. With TrueCache, you can leverage bottlenecks, keeping everyone working.
