Looking for NAS software

Recommended Posts

want to use this HP Proliant DL380 Gen3 as a NAS server




Anyone have a suggestion on what NAS software I should look at?



Having problems downloading NAS4free from sourceforge anyone have a good DL link or an alternative to NAS4Free?

I never used FreeNAS, but its one of the most popular and supported NAS appliances. I used to use ZFSGuru, but at that time there was no Plex Media Server support on FreeBSD, so switched over to Ubuntu with ZFS.


So if you need customization you can try Ubuntu with ZFS, but you lose all the fancy pre-built stuff from NAS appliances. I found scripts that handle ZFS maintenance and use Webmin for Ubuntu maintenance.
