Overall Satisfaction with FreeNAS
First of all, FreeNAS is now rebranded as TrueNAS core. We are using it for our legacy applications which are running on-prem in a local network. TrueNAS is based on FreeBSD and it's free to use with all the core features. The best part is we can switch to TruNAS enterprise in just one click which we did for some of our installations.
- Open Source Software.
- Can be used with Old system as it's based on Linux.
- It's free to use so ROI is infinite.
- Great learning experience for team.

Would you buy FreeNAS again?
I would recommend FreeNAS if you looking for self-managed NAS service in your local environment or in on-prem data centers. One thing to keep in mind this requires a basic understanding of networking and storage so it's recommended only if you have a deep understanding or are willing to learn.
