Features of our powerful, easy-to-use operating system

NAS OS

Simplify your self-hosting set-up

Say goodbye to a closet full of mismatched drives—and hello to the most flexible operating system for network-attached storage you’ll ever use. Unraid OS lets you use what you have to build what you want.  

Unraid is hardware agnostic. Mix and match hard drives of any size to build your server and grow your storage capacity. Swap your hardware at any time, or scale into a more complex server set-up. 

Store your data in an Unraid array for ultimate flexibility 

  • Protect your array with optional parity drives for additional peace of mind.
  • Control how your data is split between drives. 
  • Take advantage of cache pools to speed access to your array.

Get higher speeds with a drive pool

  • Format single-drive pools, two-drive mirrors, or even more complex ZFS pools for significant fault tolerance and speed.
  • Use a cache pool with SSDs to enable super-fast writes and take advantage of faster storage speeds for your VMs and applications.

Docker Applications

Run applications and manage data on the same server

Unraid’s simple UI makes it easy to manage your entire stack of Docker applications. Add new applications from the hundreds of user-created templates in Community Apps, or use your own!

Thanks to Unraid’s Community Apps plugin, you can easily download and run your favorite applications as Docker containers. 

Containers operate separately, and they can’t interact with one another unless you want them to. Restrict the data and resources your applications have access to for maximum security.

"Just passed the two year mark as an Unraid user. Fantastic product, but it's the community that makes it truly shine. Thank you all, both developers and fellow users." @devnul

I've always wanted to have my own media library for my home theater and a gaming PC that both a friend and I could use at the same time. I now run a modest Plex server and multiple other Dockers and recently just built a "2 Gamers, 1 CPU" style rig for gaming. Unraid has made it possible for me to achieve both of these goals. Thank you!!

@mjlukey

Great OS. The flexibility and ease of expansion made Unraid the choice for me.  I have converted 3 people at my work so far this year. Couldn't ask for a more supportive community!

@Gragorg

Happy Unraid user of about 3 years or so, and I'm on my second build now (with build #3 in the next 12 months). Unraid allowed me to consolidate a bunch of separate machines with separate storage into a single more easily managed system. It also lowered the barrier to entry to technologies like virtualisation, docker and just linux in general.

The Possibilities are Endless

If you're a gamer who plays games like Counterstrike, Valheim, Rust, and many others, did you know you can run your own servers on Unraid?
