FreeNAS is a free network-attached storage server. It supports CIFS (Samba), FTP, NFS, rsync, AFP protocols, iSCSI, S.M.A.R.T., local user authentication, and software RAID (0,1,5). It can be configured with a web browser. FreeNAS takes less than 64 MB once installed on CompactFlash, hard drive or USB flash drive.[1] FreeNAS is currently distributed as an ISO image and in source form. It is possible to run FreeNAS from a Live CD, with the configuration files stored on an MS-DOS-formatted floppy disk. There is also a VMware disk image available.

FreeNAS is based on m0n0wall.
