  2. 2. What to Expect: ● Introduction to FreeNAS ● How to Install ● Doing it Right ● Making it Work
  3. 3. FreeNAS is a Free and Open Source Embedded Operating System For Network Attached Storage
  4. 4. Get FreeNAS ● FreeNAS.org/download ● Sign up for awesome newsletter ● Choose 64-bit File ● ISO file if you have CD drive, IMG.XZ if not
  5. 5. Install FreeNAS 1. Burn ISO to a CD 2. Make sure your PC boots from the CD 3. Follow the instructions to install
  6. 6. First Time Setup 1. Remove the CD 2. Boot the PC from the USB 3. Get an IP address
  7. 7. Welcome to FreeNAS
  8. 8. Users and Groups
  9. 9. Planning your Volume ● All disks should be as close as possible in size ● You can't add disks to ZFS RAID groups, only stripe new groups together
  10. 10. ZFS Raid Options ● Mirror or Stripe of Mirrors gives great performance, but loses 50% of capacity. ● RAID-Z, RAID-Z2, and RAID-Z3 use one, two and three disks of parity respectively. Good for capacity and redundancy. ● Don't use a hardware RAID controller, ZFS works best with direct disk access.
  11. 11. Volume Creation
  12. 12. Dataset Features ● Datasets may each have different levels of compression. LZ4 is a good choice. ● Choose the share type you plan to use the dataset with. ● Quotas reserve space for this dataset or prevent it from using more than a given amount. ● Deduplication is for advanced users only.
  13. 13. Permissions
  14. 14. Sharing is Caring ● CIFS (“Windows”) Shares work with most operating systems. ● NFS (“UNIX”) Shares are a popular choice in enterprise environments. ● AFP (“Apple”) Shares work well with all-Mac environments.
