The NAS4Free operating system can be installed on virtually any hardware platform to share computer data storage over a computer network. 'NAS' as in “Network-Attached Storage” and '4Free' as in 'Free and open source', NAS4Free is the simplest and fastest way to create a centralized and easily-accessible server for all kind of data!

NAS4Free supports sharing across Windows, Apple, and UNIX-like systems. It includes ZFS, Software RAID (0,1,5), disk encryption, S.M.A.R.T / email reports etc. with following protocols/services: CIFS/SMB (samba), Samba AD, FTP, NFS v4, TFTP, AFP, RSYNC, Unison, iSCSI, UPnP, Bittorent, Syncthing, VirtualBox and noVNC, Bridge, CARP (Common Address Redundancy Protocol) and HAST (Highly Available Storage).

This all can easy be managed by a configurable webinterface.

Citizen Development and the Consumerization of IT Icon

How is your organization empowering citizen developers to create their own solutions to improve productivity?

Citizen developers are regular end-users who utilize low-code platforms, which empower them to create or customize applications which they and their colleagues can use, without the input of central IT. Citizen development software can enable any user to build applications or improve the efficiency of their business processes. It’s ultimately about putting more responsibility (and more technological capability) in the hands of workers.

  • I have been using Nas4Free for over 2 years now, and never loose one bit of data having survived a power supply and hard drive failure, performance is more than OK for my home lab, ZFS is really awesome, ZFS over ISCSI for my virtual machines makes me a really proud user of an open-source NAS. Congratulation to all developers!! The only thing that is missing from my opinion is more support for cloud storage.

  • No meu caso, o mais completo.

  • Simple, powerful, and ZFS!!!
