Angelfish TrueNAS Scale 22.02 Is Here
TrueNAS Scale has been in development for quite some time now and is now available in addition to iXsystems’ original TrueNAS software, which should be getting it’s own update to TrueNAS 13 relatively soon. TrueNAS Scale is Linux based as opposed to the original which ran on FreeBSD, and that increases the available tools to a user that wants better control over their networked storage devices.
TrueNAS Scale adds support for KVM for virtualization, the ability to incorporate Kubernetes, as well as Gluster-based scale outs in addition to everything that the original was capable of and indeed the two can work together if you prefer to use TrueNAS Scale as an application manager and TrueNAS to handle pure storage set up.
iXsystems’ new NAS software and the TrueCommand interface could well prove to be serious competition for other similar products from Proxmox VE, QNAP or VMWare if TrueNAS Scale is able to scale up to handle infrastructure which contains a large amount of hardware. Serve The Home has had a quick look at the new NAS suite, with a detailed follow up coming soon.
