Asigra Plug-in For TrueNAS Core

Thank you for installing the Asigra Plug-in for TrueNAS CORE and starting the registration process.



Experience True Backup Freedom

Asigra teamed up with iXsystems to offer Asigra’s software to the multitude of TrueNAS and TrueNAS CORE (formerly known as FreeNAS) users. The Asigra Plug-In is easy to install and manage. The Asigra DS-System repository software runs natively on TrueNAS controller – which frees up resources by not requiring an external host to run the actual backup software on. If you’re already using TrueNAS or TrueNAS CORE, it is a no-brainer to install and test it out.
