Is Solaris from Oracle free?

I have had recommendations to use solaris as an inexpensive NAS solution. Does Oracle have a free version. From what I see it costs thousands of dollars. is there a link to a free version?

What are thelimits of this version if there is a free version.

I'm trying to create a NAS to store files using ZFS file system but for business use not HOME otherwise i would try FREENAS. I need something more reliable and secure.

It looks like it's open source
