Extending NAS Functionality with the FreeNAS Plugins System


FreeNAS is an open source, network attached storage platform based on FreeBSD. The Plugins Jail, introduced in version 8.3, can be used to extend core-NAS functionality by installing PBIs (push button installers) that integrate additional services into the FreeNAS administrative GUI.

This presentation will introduce the Plugins Jail and PBI architectures, demonstrate how to install, configure, and manage PBI software, and how to install and configure additional software that has not yet been packaged as a PBI. It will also provide an overview of how to create FreeNAS PBIs.
