The FreeNAS project, along with TrueNAS, are very closely related network attached storage platforms maintained by iXsystems. FreeNAS is a community-supported NAS solution while TrueNAS receives commercial support from iXsystems. The two projects have been growing closer together and will unite later this year. The iXsystems team plans to call the newly merged platforms TrueNAS. FreeNAS will continue under the name TrueNAS CORE while TrueNAS will be referred to as TrueNAS Enterprise. "The only thing changing is the name. FreeNAS will take on the name of TrueNAS CORE. More than just a Free-NAS, TrueNAS CORE is enterprise-quality software-defined storage that can be used without restrictions or cost. It is also the core of the full-fledged enterprise edition, TrueNAS Enterprise, which provides the additional fault-tolerance, performance, and support that businesses and critical applications require."
