iXsystems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of FreeBSD and FreeNAS solutions, announced the expansion of its unified storage product portfolio with the addition of three new units today. In addition to the new hardware configurations, the entire line is refreshed with the latest version of firmware, TrueNAS 9.2.




The new appliances start at a maximum capacity of 240TB and scale all the way to 1.15PB. Each unified appliance is capable of supporting CIFS, NFS, AFP, and iSCSI. In addition, they are all also available in high availability configurations with optional redundant storage controllers. Detailed technical specifications are provided in the following chart:




On the software side, the new TrueNAS 9.2 adds automated management via a RESTful API to integrate with 3rd party management tools. Also, there is now real-time LZ4 compression and performance enhancements that iXsystems claims can produce ten times less storage latency versus previous versions for some customers workloads.
