What is TrueNAS?

TrueNAS is an open-source network-attached storage (NAS) system that provides both file and block storage. It allows you to store and manage your data on a central server and access it from any device on your network. TrueNAS is based on the FreeBSD operating system and uses the ZFS file system, which is known for its reliability and data integrity. It can be deployed on physical hardware or as a virtual machine, making it a versatile and flexible storage solution for businesses of all sizes.

What is Storj?

Storj is a decentralized, open-source storage platform that uses a network of distributed nodes to store files securely. It is built on top of the blockchain and uses encryption to protect files from unauthorized access. Storj allows users to rent out their unused hard drive space to the network in exchange for the STORJ token, which can be used to pay for storage on the platform. Because it is decentralized, Storj is resistant to censorship and downtime, making it a potentially attractive option for people who want a more secure and reliable way to store their files.
