It's their own customized OS. Basic storage is mdadm with ext filesystems, but they have their own hybrid raid as well that can be used.
Yeah, but with a mirrored pair, I couldn't max out 10GigE =)
Ideally you need 12 drives to max out 10gige, I settled on 8 HDD, as it was good...
There are probably a dozen xeon-d/FreeNAS buildguides on this site already.
No need to add to that =)
Single slot, half-length, full-height. Pci-e 2.0x8
No functional differences, just a change in board layout really.
Seller refused my offer and countered with $177/board for qty 2 :(
I built a freenas box on a Xeon-D board. 8 HDD 4SSD 1 Optane SLOG, 10gige, and it still fits under a 100W power target.
Runs all my background...
I don't think that's been an issue for a while.
It's all baked-in and supported in the latest versions last I checked.
Get a PC with 6-8 HDDs in it
Use mdadm to build various raid0, 1, 5, 10 configurations
Share each of those configs out over NFS/SMB...
Since you mentioned samba, have you enabled smb multichannel in your config?
That will get you a big boost.
Honestly, at this point going forward, I'm not really sure I recommend them for any new installs due to the complete lack of future support....
They are fantastic for that.
Depends on what you are building.
If you want a single 3.2 or 6.4TB target for a hypervisor/etc, they work great.
The same way the docs I linked specified.

Well, we'd usually drop huge databases onto them, or use them as storage for enterprise virtualization. They make great data recorders for sensor...
