The new R-Series storage systems include four models “designed for maximum density, performance, Open Storage flexibility, and cost savings”. TrueNAS SCALE introduces easy-to-manage hyperconvergence based on scale-out OpenZFS.
The TrueNAS R-Series combines the advantages of purpose-built storage systems with the flexibility of TrueNAS storage OS. The R-Series includes the ability to run any of three TrueNAS software editions: TrueNAS CORE, TrueNAS Enterprise and TrueNAS SCALE.
Each of the TrueNAS R-Series models features IntelXeon Scalable CPUs and can be configured with the processing, memory, and networking needed to deliver up to 100 Gb/s of storage performance.
iXsystems is also announcing the first release of TrueNAS SCALE: an easy-to-manage HCI platform for converged compute and scale-out Open ZFS storage.
TrueNAS SCALE is available as Open Source software built atop Debian Linux or as an appliance-based solution that combines TrueNAS SCALE with purpose-built systems, including High-Availability (HA) systems like the X-Series, M-Series or the all-new R-Series systems.
R-Series pricing starts at under $4,000 and grows with processing and storage capacity.
