BSD and Darwin derivatives "FreeNAS is an open source operating system based on FreeBSD and, as its name implies, designed for networked storage. The project recently celebrated the release of FreeNAS 8, which racked up some 43,000 downloads in the first 48 hours after its release. I caught up with Josh Paetzel, director of IT at iXsystems and project manager for FreeNAS 8, to talk about the current state of the OS, what lies ahead for it, and the relationship to FreeNAS 0.7."

I thought the encryption code was already out, but what do I know, not as much as him apparently.

ZFS encryption is a relatively new feature even on Solaris (in fact I wasn't even aware Oracle had released that versions source already).

FreeBSD's current ZFS version (v15?) doesn't even support raidz3 and deduping, which was released quite some time back, so it certainly wouldn't be recent enough to support encryption.
