FreeNAS vs Openfiler

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.
