Today's video shows how to install Open Filer in a Virtual Machine
. I will be including more videos soon on how to configure the various parts of Open Filer.
Open Filer is a very easy to use storage system which integrates with Active Directory
. It supports NFS
, etc... It has many features including Snapshots, Replication, and High Availability. There is a both a Community Version (Free) and a Commercial Version (Not Free).
If you will be using this as the production storage system for your company, you may want to consider the commercial version since that comes with support. You don't want to find yourself with a seemingly unsolvable problem with no one to help you.
For those who don't want to go through all the pains of installing OpenFiler (Not all that Painful), you can actually download pre-made Virtual Machines where all you have to do is configure the settings you want to use.
To Learn how to Configure Open Filer after Installing it, see my Tutorial on How to Configure OpenFiler
