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.

  • Consistently ahead of other projects for a home NAS. builtin VurtualBox VM server with USB passthrough. Your choice of Fuppies or MiniDLNA. AFP, TimeMachine, CIFs/SMB/SAMBA AD. Consistent releases that are well enough tested before GA. Far to many features to touch on them all. FTP, TFTP, Rsync, LDAP, included. If your creative enough you can run custom command scripts to load ssh keys and transfer snap shots. Plugin system to add/create features.

  • NAS4Free is a good project... I'm not a professional of server and protocols... And I really need help to make N4F functional. I sugest to give onLine help in the right of page in the WebGUI. But I know, it's a hard work ! I have some problems : ITunes/DAAP do not work with iTunes... I found and use FirePlayer (try on OSx only at this moment) and It run very well ! Others problems in owners, groups and rights. Format ZSF or UFS ? I found help in French somewhere, this save me...
