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 haven't used FreeNAS yet, but can't you maually create GELI-based "disks", then use those to create the pool?

That's the current method of supporting enc in ZFS on FreeBSD.

ZFS enc is part of ZFSv31 which is only available in Oracle Solaris 11 Express.
