Question What is the best OpenSource NAS

Dear All,

Could anybody please suggest or give me recommendation: what is the best Opensource NAS system? ..

I tried FreeNAS and OpenFiler .. but I am facing unsolved important problems with them.. (in FreeNAS 8.0.4 I am facing LACP issue, and in OpenFiler I am facing with RAID 1 issue)..

many thanks in advance

I've used Amahi before. They're good but currently support an unsupported version of Fedora (Fedora 14). There are community attempts at using CentOS instead which are going well but for a little more advanced user.

Basically, what it came down to was me configuring my own NAS using software on Fedora 16 and manually configuring everything.

You should copy the samba, DNS, DHCP, and any other service scripts/configs you use and migrate them to a server in which you manually configure. I've found that to be the best solution.

FreeNAS vs Openfiler. Pick whichever one you like.
