Unraid has their Pro registration keys for 20% off. No hardware required, so if you are planning to build a system later this one works.

Discounts apply to purchases of Pro registration keys, Basic to Pro Upgrades, and Plus to Pro upgrades only.

Good timing with all those 14tb+ hdds arriving.

All Basic/Plus/Pro registration keys are eligible to run new releases of Unraid OS at no additional cost - So it's a lifetime license (per server) and no time limit to use said license.

Been running UnRaid since the 4.7 days which dates back about 10 years now.

They've added many features and utilities over the years and is rock solid.

It supports Dockers, VMs and community developed apps. And it runs off nothing but a simple USB stick.

My UnRaid is running as a VM inside of ESXi, and has been flawless.

Anyone have questions, I can help answer.
It really depends on what you're using it for. unRAID is solid when it comes to running containers cleanly.

IMO, the major benefits of unRAID are:

1.) Being able to use different sizes disks and still have redundancy.
2.) Having a cache drive for fast storage that requires a lot of reads and writes (Plex, VMs, container storage, etc)
3.) Good webgui that makes managing containers quite simple.

The biggest downside by far is performance. Write speeds on the array itself aren't great - I get maybe 100MB/sec if I'm lucky.
Great find. I don't think I've ever seen Unraid go on sale.

For those that don't know, Unraid is a great alternative to a Synology or Qnap NAS where you build the server yourself out of old or new PC parts depending on what you want to do with it.

Unraid is amazing. Rock solid. Didn't have to reboot my unraid box for the entirety of 2020, despite heavy usage due to the pandemic and everyone being at home. I might just upgrade to pro using this discount. Currently have the plus version which limits me to 12 drives.

The reason why I switched two reasons.

1. I can lose 2+ hard drives without losing the ENTIRE array, you just lose what is on those 2+ drives.
2. I have a dual parity protected 300tb array with 24 drives of various sizes from 14tbs to 6 tbs. When I started I had about 50tbs of various sizes. The expandability is unmatched, you can increase the size of your array without need to buy 4-6 hard drives of the same size, that saved me a ton of money and allowed be to upgrade with prices were good, and slowly instead of all at once.

I just purchased 4 14tb drives and replaced 2 12tb parity drives and 2 6tb drives that I had in my array, My array was down for the time it took me to remove the drives and replace them.

Yeah I was looking for previous BF deals on it last week and found it never goes on sale. Just wanted to register a key for the first time today and saw this. Honestly I was thinking of getting the plus at $89 which works for 12 drives. But now I can get Pro for $14 more (which in reality may never use) good marketing strategy on their part to only discount the Pro.

So, the only difference between the different tiers is the amount of disks in the server?

OpenMediaVault is an alternative which is free. Not sure if Unraid is better at this price.

I've been looking at building an unraid server. I've read that there is a 30 drive cap. I have lots of HDDs from the last 15+ years.

Not sure the best way to start a server build with a very large array.

Yeah, there is TrueNas Core (FreeBSD), TrueNas Scale (Linux), and Open Media Vault (Linux/Debian), which are free. Not sure if those options have the ability to mix and match different sizes of HDs though like mentioned above. Also, not sure if UnRaid includes any kind of customer support with the paid license.

Based on what I gather UnRaid system requirements seem to be more forgiving than TrueNas.

UnRaid community seems to be very big, same with TrueNas. Not sure about Open Media Vault as I haven't checked but I will imagine it has a considerable community too given that it is popular on the Raspberry Pi community.


UnRaid and TrueNas seem to be easier to deploy dockers, VMs, and other apps like plex. Open Media Vault seem to support linux containers natively and can do Docker if you add it, it is a little bit more of leg work to deploy things like plex from within it or a container.
