FreeNAS is for creating shared storage for VMware ESX or ESXi hosts – a requirement when you want to use some of the vSphere clustering features like HA and DRS. I simply provision a VM that it runs on and use that to provide the storage in NFS (Network File System) format to my hosts. FreeNAS supports some great features.
