FreeNAS 10 Has Been Recalled



  • After having been released, FreeNAS 10 turned out to be unreliable and not ready for production release. This is a major snafu for a storage vendor for whom the utmost of reliability is the key value point.

    Doesn't come as a big surprise, I found it to not work when I tested it and it fits a pattern of instability we've seen with previous FreeNAS products and is predicted by the Jurassic Park Effect as the layering of extra, unnecessary services on a storage device just adds risk and fragility.

    True, adding the whole virtualization aspect and container support might caused this. I genuine when testing it out didnt like the new theme or steering me away from being storage server into something else.

    I agree, I think that FreeNAS feels like it is drifting now. Is it storage, is it a hypervisor? Any BHyve for normal users, really? The new interface looked cool, but failed to even run when I tested it. They are a tiny company with few resource trying to do way too much. The old FreeNAS product was bad enough, I know loads of places loses data or access to data either because FreeNAS itself was glitchy or because it failed the "front loaded engineering" design principle and left customers in a tight position leading to failure.
