FreeNAS vs Openfiler

Posted on Updated on


Hari ini saya punya kesempatan untuk nyobain dua free server NAS (Network-Attached Storage), FreeNAS & Openfiler, FreeNAS berbasis FreeBSD dan Openfiler berbasis Linux CentOS.

Hasil sementara “saya lebih memilih FreeNAS daripada Openfiler, kenapa? secara umum fitur dari keduanya hampir sama, tapi ada beberapa alasan khusus yang membuat saya menjatuhkan pilihan ke FreeNAS.

  • Administrasinya lebih simple dan mudah.
  • Filesystem UFS (filesystem default di FreeNAS) lebih tidak mudah corrupt dibanding ext3 (file system default di Openfiler), apalagi sekarang FreeNAS sudah include ZFS support (FreeNAS 0.7RC1 (Sardaukar)).
  • Ukuran installer FreeNAS lebih kecil dibanding Openfiler.

Untuk info lengkapnya silahkan berkunjung ke masing-masing website officialnya, atau bisa juga membaca tulisan yang sangat menarik yang membahas tentang keduanya disini.

    This day i have a chance to try 2 NAS server, freeNAS & Open filler. freeNAs based from freeBSD and Openfiller based on Linux CentOS.

    according on my test…i choose freeNAS than Openfiller because, generally, features from both of them is same but…
    1. freenas have a simple administration adn easy to configure
    2. UFS filesystem(default file system on FreeNAS) is more “anti-corrupt” than ext3 file system on Openfiller. and freeNAs have been support with ZFS system (u can try FreeNAS 0.7 RC1 Sardaukar).
    3. FreeNAS installer is smaller than Openfiller.

    For the complete information u can visit their official site, or u can read some interesing post from me about freeNAs and Openfiller in http://meta.wacana.net/archives/51-Gudang-Data-Opensource-FreeNAS-atau-Openfiler.html (in Indonesian)

    @ Mas Asfihani

    Klo menurut saya dikarenakan mereka mengejar faktor kompatibilitas hardware, karena perkembangan compatibility hardware di linux pergerakannya cepat sekali dibanding FreeBSD.

    Tapi ZFS tetep fitur yang banyak diharapkan untuk segera proven di linux.
