looking for a NAS/NAS software to make bakups on my network

I have a supermicro server with a lot of disk in raid 5  and I want to use it as a storage server for my network. I found openfiler but I see there´s not enough development  (last version is from feb-2009), I see also freenas but not sure if it´s ready to be used for enterprise (I have some XEN dom0/domU). My question is:
Which NAS/SAN opensource software  do you recommend me? Bring me details if possible.

Openfiler is an excellent solution for open source NAS/SAN tasks, don't let the development cycle fool you. As far as I know it is still being actively developed but you have to keep in mind that there is not a whole lot to change over time with Openfiler. Updating the kernel perhaps, but it's a fairly solid product as it stands now.

I have no experience with freenas but I have run into several of my customers that run openfiler in an enterprise environment, I have heard no complaints. If you prefer something more "tried and true" in the enterprise world but also more hands on, you can run a standard linux distro such as red hat or suse and use open-iscsi if you need iSCSI target functionality.
