Nexenta CE may only be used for testing, not allowed for production.

If you go for a cheap but reliable SAN, look after Promise VessRAID

If you don’t want to spend any money, have a look at freenas which is
pretty nice, full featured and uses ZFS in the back.

Almost a year ago I have similar doubts and ( bad ) adventures trying
to use Freenas and nas4free, and it only gave me lots of head aches !!!

My advice is forget about it, with ZFS is just not stable ( my record
was 5 days before weird and inexplicable freezes ! ) .

With native BSD file system works OK, but the performance are realy
poor .

People in this list pointed me to a stable solution :

This :


plus this :


6 mounths up and running smoothly and rock solid !!!

I am using nfs with dedicated switcher, the performance are excelent
