Unbeatable for the price. :-) Fast reliable. Not a fancy system with colourful GUI but also low HW requirements. Basic offer of usual services available - torrent, web server, FTP - and possibility to install others as addons.
Amazing software, very easy to use and reliable !
I use it for many years with dual hard drives
Its very light, give a second life to old desktops.
More plug-ins would be amazing (sockso, new Dynamic DNS services, ...)
my favorite NAS System since years
I have been using Nas4Free for over 2 years now, and never loose one bit of data having survived a power supply and hard drive failure, performance is more than OK for my home lab, ZFS is really awesome, ZFS over ISCSI for my virtual machines makes me a really proud user of an open-source NAS.
Congratulation to all developers!!
The only thing that is missing from my opinion is more support for cloud storage.
Nas4Free/XigmaNAS is easily the best free NAS program out there. I have extensively tested it. It does have minor issues here and there but compared to the competition it is really the best. I was using for years FreeNAS, which is another good (and free) nas program OS (and the father of XigmaNAS). Sadly that fork has gotten to big (and slow) for its own good.
I have been using for about 3 years. Currently on a proxmox server as a vm. It has been a stable part of my environment and has served as both a backup solution, and file sharing system. Effective and flexible, highly recommended.
