I used to build my NAS using freenas 7 before something went wrong and i lost all my data :( not sure why though... so i want to rebuild new NAS that utilize ZFS. i know freenas 8 and Solaris does support it. But have not yet tested with Solaris. I want my NAS to stream movie/music for multiple PC, and also to be able to backup my data using rsync. If i able to use FTP when I can also backup my files manually apart from using rsync. Can solaris do all these? Thanks

Well it's been a while, but I think it's a 2 core Athlon X2 64, cheap Asus board, 1gb RAM used for Samba and FTP for 10 users, lots of power for that. It's an old version of FreeNAS (0.68x something), and I see that current versions require LOTS more RAM for using ZFS.

I set up a test server on very old hardware a few months ago running latest stable 7.x. It only has 1.5gig of ram and it handles a ZFS mirror quite well at low load, so the minimum specs that are listed seem overkill for some configurations.
