TrueNAS is an Open Source powered storage platform that scales from private home servers to 20PB+ storage platforms and has over a million deployments. Going forward, Nextcloud Hub will be officially supported on TrueNAS systems with easy install of the official Nextcloud Hub app requiring just a few clicks. Together, Nextcloud and TrueNAS provide an extremely versatile and reliable collaboration and data storage platform.
TrueNAS: software defined storage
Silicon Valley’s iXsystems develops Open Source powered storage solutions. TrueNAS is a software defined storage platform which provides file, block, object, and app storage built on top of OpenZFS. Users deploy it for backup, cloud hosting, virtualization, multimedia, edge storage, and more use-cases. TrueNAS offers:
Unified Storage: While Nextcloud will manage a lot of data for the organization, the same TrueNAS may also manage NFS, SMB, iSCSI, or S3 data for other applications and backup systems.
Data Management: Built into TrueNAS CORE, OpenZFS provides continuous integrity checks and self-healing, along with RAID functions, snapshots, clones, and replication of data.
Integrated Security: Encryption of data-at-rest is managed with admin-provided keys or integration with enterprise KMIP servers. Integrated VPNs and encrypted replication provide protection from hackers.
High Availability (HA): Downtime impacts productivity and is unacceptable to larger organizations. TrueNAS Enterprise provides dual-controller options (X-Series and M-Series) to deliver “five nines” availability (equivalent to downtime of less than 5 minutes per year).
Scalability: Scale-up to 20PB in a single one-rack system or scale-out to even larger systems with TrueNAS SCALE (Currently in BETA). Most importantly, there is no need to pay excessively for users with high capacity needs due to photos or videos.
Nextcloud on TrueNAS
Easy management, powerful OpenZFS data management and high availability features have brought TrueNAS to over a million deployments. Tens of thousands of TrueNAS systems already run Nextcloud through a variety of means and the jointly supported Nextcloud Hub app for TrueNAS is designed to give users an even better experience.
TrueNAS systems will offer the full Nextcloud Hub experience with Files, Groupware, Talk, and (depending on the TrueNAS version) Collabora Online based office document editing. Nextcloud and iXsystems offer enterprise support options for business users.
Tomorrow, October 13 at 5PM Berlin time/8AM California time we organize an Ask-us-anything in a live session with Nextcloud co-founder and marketing director, Jos Poortvliet, and iXsystems’ Morgan Littlewood, SVP, Product Management. During the stream, we’ll announce a hardware raffle so if you’d like a chance to win your own TrueNAS Mini X+, be there!

Video calls and online chats are second nature for us at this point. Taking your work call virtually or communicating with your manager online can all be done from home and this style of working is generally accepted. However, what is not universally accepted is the fact that Big Tech firms are ambiguous about what […]
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Last Thursday, the Digital Markets Act went into effect with the first ‘Gatekeepers designations’. The new EU rules would require Microsoft to stop some of its alleged market-distorting behavior by March 2024, but even if implemented swiftly it is unlikely to create a more equitable market. What we need is more action from the European […]
