iXsystems has announced the general release of TrueNAS SCALE 22.02.0, after 18 months of development and testing effort including contributions from nearly 10,000 community users. TrueNAS SCALE software enables hyperconverged infrastructure and unified scale-out storage that is also easy to deploy and manage. TrueNAS SCALE is built on Linux, offers existing TrueNAS features, plus new Linux-specific capabilities including Docker Containers, Kubernetes, KVM, and Scale-Out ZFS through the Gluster file system.
The “RELEASE” stage for TrueNAS SCALE enables customers to start evaluating and building systems for business use with enterprise support. The software currently manages over 200 petabytes deployed globally within the TrueNAS community across their widely varying hardware platforms and x86 servers.
TrueNAS SCALE delivers SMB and NFS File Sharing, iSCSI Block Storage, S3 Object API integration, and Cloud Sync for interoperability with public cloud storage. It also offers unique flexibility as hyperconverged infrastructure that allows scaling of compute and storage independently. TrueNAS SCALE can be installed and run on a single node and, over time, scale-out horizontally to over 100 clustered nodes.
With Kubernetes for deploying containerized (e.g., Docker) applications, partners such as TrueCharts.org have further enabled large catalogs of applications to be readily available to the user community.
TrueNAS SCALE 22.02.0 is now available for download.
