Works great.. love that they support zfs

After using TrueNAS Scale for the past couple years I've found it to be very reliable. It works great for any of my Network Backup or Storage Access needs between my mobile and desktop devices. After looking into some learning resources it's pretty great for beginners to dig into something more advanced. The Apps do require frequent maintenance and sometimes need to be redeployed after updates change things (Depends on the container) but otherwise everything else is set and go. I couldn't think of a better NAS software to run than TrueNAS.
