FreeNAS 10, World’s Most Popular Software-Defined Storage OS, Gets New Beta

FreeNAS 10 Beta 2 comes almost three months after the first Beta milestone, and the devs are proud to say that the upcoming operating system, which will be a total rewrite, is now feature complete, and there are many GUI enhancements for the Dashboard, Volume UI, Accounts, System, Services, Networking, Calendar, Console, and Peering. Also, it looks like feature-parity with the FreeNAS 9.10 is in place now. The user interface is probably one of the biggest areas improved in this second Beta development release of FreeNAS 10, which now features a scriptable command-line interface, as you can see from the gallery below, but there’s also the implementation of new capabilities for hosting containerized applications and virtual machines, thanks to the implementation of a new bhyve hypervisor.
