FreeNAS 11.1 pro­vides greater per­for­mance and cloud in­te­gra­tion

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

FreeNAS 11.1 adds cloud in­te­gra­tion and OpenZFS per­for­mance im­prove­ments, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to pri­ori­tise ‘re­sil­ver­ing’ op­er­a­tions, and pre­lim­i­nary Docker sup­port to the world’s most pop­u­lar soft­ware-de­fined stor­age op­er­at­ing sys­tem. It also adds a cloud sync (data im­port/ ex­port to the cloud) fea­ture, which lets you sync (sim­i­lar to back up), move

(erase from source) or copy (only changed data) data to and from pub­lic cloud providers that in­clude Ama­zon

S3 (Simple Stor­age

Ser­vices), Back­blaze B2

Cloud, Google Cloud and Mi­crosoft Azure.

OpenZFS has no­tice­able per­for­mance im­prove­ments for han­dling mul­ti­ple snap­shots and large files. Re­sil­ver Pri­or­ity has been added to the ‘Stor­age’ screen of the graph­i­cal user in­ter­face, al­low­ing you to con­fig­ure ‘re­sil­ver­ing’ at a higher pri­or­ity at spe­cific times. This helps to mit­i­gate the in­her­ited chal­lenges and risks as­so­ci­ated with stor­age ar­ray re­builds on very large ca­pac­ity drives.

The lat­est re­lease in­cludes an up­dated pre­view of the beta ver­sion of the new ad­min­is­tra­tor graph­i­cal user in­ter­face, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to se­lect dis­play themes. It can be down­loaded from freenas.org/down­load.
