I am having a bit of split in thought.
I am looking at getting a NAS for my company, we need it for our VMware server.
Originally the idea was to buy a NAS (a Netgear ReadyNAS)
But then I got some recommendations from the community (ServerFault) to build a NAS from a server and use something like NextentaStor, Openfiler or FreeNAS.
I have eliminated Openfiler for several reasons and I am now left between Nexentastor and FreeNAS.
The problem I am having is whether FreeNAS can be counted on for a production environment.
Is FreeNAS good enough to be an iSCSI back end to VMware? The last time I used FreeNAS it was version 0.7.
We would be using Nexentastor community not the paid version.
Any insight would be great.
