Zetavault includes a high performance kernel based NFS server. Integration with ZFS means that exporting storage to NFS clients is very simple. This provides a very effective network storage solution for virtual machine images.

Currently we support NFS V3 and V4.

Windows clients are supported by the SMB protocol which is handled by the SMB service.


Support for all Ethernet networks including 1 Gigabit, 10 Gigabit and 40 Gigabit.

NFS V3 and V4 support.

Users and group management. Advanced NFS export options.


Support for Windows based clients.

SMB can integrate with a Windows Server domain, either as a Domain Controller (DC) or as a domain member.

Version 4, supports Active Directory and Windows NT domains.

Full GUI based configuration for exports, users and groups.

Authenticated User Access

Zetavault can connect as a client to your Active Directory, LDAP or Kerberos infrastructure allowing seamless authenticated user access to data across both NFS and SMB.


The NFS aspect of Zetavault is VMware Ready and Citrix Ready.
