FreeNAS Droplet

I would like to be able to spin up a FreeNAS droplet with a 40 GB boot SSD and four 200 GB storage SSDs, which can be configured in a range of different ways: JBOD, mirror, stripe or RAID-Z 1.

DO should offer larger SSD packages and additional SSD storage.
Enabling RAID-Z 2 and RAID-Z 3 for large private cloud services.

I would very much like to run FreeNAS on Digital Ocean servers; I currently run four custom SANs with FreeNAS at home.

    I too would like a FreeNAS droplet as it would greatly increase my current workflow.

    I too was looking to deploy a droplet today for FreeNAS if it were provided. I'm only needing it to accept replication traffic from my local NAS, so am not even concerned about high throughput disk-wise.

    I agree, please can you provide us with an update on this?

    Further to the above, I reckon a Droplet area just for SANs should be set up.

    Message me, I am up for prototyping it for you DigialOcean!

    I particularly require FreeNAS in a reliable cloud environment with excellent network security and response time.

    Yes please, add FreeNAS as an image available to create a Droplet
