A good product that needs to be explored

SoftNAS certainly a very useful product, however, you need to estimate/project your costs for a file sharing software.

A good start point will be try the free offering of Amazon + SoftNAS ( hourly subscription ).

Very viable NAS in the cloud

Set up was easy but I found that the storage pool was forever reporting back that it was degraded. I also lost the storage pool at least twice when I was fiddling with hot spares etc. Removing all the drives and starting again seemed to have fixed it. Hence a deduction of one star.

The creation of the shared drives <NFS and CFS> is a bit fiddly via the GUI and in my view, the GUI and workflow needs a refresh. It feels quite dated. Hence a deduction of another star.

However, the negative points aside, we will be using softNAS as it is price competitive and quick to set-up (despite the problems experienced) - we haven't put any of our production systems to it but will put softNAS into our stage/pre-prod. If anyone is looking for a NAS in the cloud, softNAS is definitely a viable option.
