Linux Btrfs NAS Server

BTRFS is rapidly filling that void by offering many great features.

With Rockstor as your NAS Server, you can:

  • Use the capabilities and amazing feature-set of BTRFS without being a seasoned Linux professional.
  • Realize the full potential of BTRFS as a NAS file-system.
  • Enjoy the benefits of BTRFS while easily managing everything from Rockstor’s Web-User Interface.
