Hi Experts,

I have a vsphere 5.5 cluster with 2 hosts ESXi5.5.
Is it possible to connect to FREENAS and use this as a datastore ?

Yes it is possible to connect to FREENAS, but FREENAS is a little old, and performance is poor.

FreeNAS supports NFS and iSCSI.

I would recommend....

Nexenta Community Edition

Much better, modern, better performance.

It's a Community version, so it's FREE, not really Open Source.

Nexenta Community Edition works great and its performance is better than any other free product I have used.
