The folks at iXsystems have released TrueNAS SCALEE 24.04 as the newest iteration of their Linux-based platform for network attached storage (NAS) devices. TrueNAS SCALE 24.04 brings better performance, new features, and additional hardware support.

The release announcement for TrueNAS SCALE 24.04 is promoting it as "the best-ever TrueNAS version" thanks to all of the improvements. On the performance side there's a lot of work in particular that's been contributed to OpenZFS for greater ZFS file-system performance. In addition to the faster ZFS storage performance, TrueNAS SCALE 24.04 has various security enhancements, SMB/NFS share wizards, SMB client auditing from the web interface, and various other new features. A new community-supported feature is Linux Sandboxes for a FreeBSD Jails like experience on TrueNAS SCALE.

The iXsystems engineers report that more than 40% of the TrueNAS community has already shifted to TrueNAS SCALE as their Linux-based platform from TrueNAS' original FreeBSD base. With the TrueNAS SCALE 24.04 release, they hope it will go well over 50% in favor of SCALE.
