    • Setting up your first NAS with FreeNAS
    • What to Expect: ● Introduction to FreeNAS ● How to Install ● Doing it Right ● Making it Work
    • FreeNAS is a Free and Open Source Embedded Operating System For Network Attached Storage
    • 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
    • Install FreeNAS 1. Burn ISO to a CD 2. Make sure your PC boots from the CD 3. Follow the instructions to install
    • First Time Setup 1. Remove the CD 2. Boot the PC from the USB 3. Get an IP address
    • Welcome to FreeNAS
    • Users and Groups
    • 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
    • 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.
    • Volume Creation
    • 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.
    • Permissions
    • 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.
    • Thanks!
