All New  Web Interface

FreeNAS 11.2 introduces an updated web interface. Based on Angular and Javascript, the web interface has been modernized to be more user-friendly, snappier, and aesthetically pleasing.Video Player00:0000:18

The redundant top bar has been removed and most FreeNAS configuration menus can be accessed by clicking the appropriate item in the left column. The new design streamlines the layout with cleaner dropdown menus, while maintaining the same functionality and workflow you’ve grown familiar with while using FreeNAS.

All your favorite FreeNAS features are still available, including the same robust protocol support, snapshots, pool management, and more. If you prefer to use the legacy web interface, you can switch between the two from the login menu at any time.

Other Improvements

FreeNAS 11.2 also offers a large number of important updates to enhance system capabilities, stability, and performance:

  • Cloud Choices: Huge increase in the number of choices for cloud backup, with the ability to sync with leading storage providers such as AWS, Google, Azure, Box, Dropbox, Backblaze, and more. These backups can be encrypted for data security.
  • VM Management: Better management and handling of VM creation to ensure VMs have more memory during boot.
  • Enhanced Encryption: Support for self-encrypting drives (SEDs). SEDs are FIPS 140-2 compliant, which is useful for government use, HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
  • ZFS Improvements: Latest up-to-date version of OpenZFS with performance and feature enhancement to improve ARC performance, scrub speeds, and vdev resiliency.
  • Robust API: Swagger-compliant REST and WebSockets API with integrated documentation, improved usability, and backwards compatibility with the legacy API.
  • Mobile and Theming Support: Choose from several built-in themes or create your own custom theme. Built-in mobile support makes it easier than ever to access FreeNAS via your smartphone or tablet.
