Frequently Asked Questions

  What Operating System (OS) will be running on my server?

We are an open-source company - meaning we can put any OS on your server. But we recommend FreeNAS to all our post-production customers because when you connect to your PC it shows up as a single drive.

  What other OS's does the Storinator support?

As noted above we are open-source therefore we can put any OS on your machine including: CentOS, debian, FreeBSD, Rockstor, Windows, unRAID and of course FreeNAS.

  How difficult is it to locate my files on my PC after importing?

If you are editing in a Windows environment, it's as easy as searching for media inside the file explorer when importing. Likewise, it's just as easy to find media using the finder feature inside a Mac environment.

  I'm All Set Up - Now What (Running FreeNAS)

Nothing! Start using your new storage solution.

  Is there anything else I should know?

The only thing you need to know is that FreeNAS is configured with an error email system, so you only have to worry about problems if you receive one. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that if a problem does occur, the error email system will indicate the issue for you.

  What if I have a problem?

We have your back! If you ever have a problem, you can reach out to us through our website, online chat, email or give us a call - It's just that easy! We take care of the necessary headaches so you can concentrate on what you do best in the video production world.

Success Stories

"We won't need to turn around and buy another NAS next year. With the Storinator we have a lot of room to grow. The performance on this machine is mind blowing." Travis Barlow
VP of Advanced Security Services, GoSecure
"We have approximately 30,000 mailboxes on our server and 45 Drives support was exemplary." Alex Ball
Vice President, QX.Net
"What gets me excited with this pod, which is basically the cost of three 'big-name' servers with hard drives, is I can get the same storage, with infinitely better write performance (even running Windows), so I need to buy less physical storage boxes. " Eric Koss, IT Director
