NESTO SE is the entry point storage solution designed for professional 4K video editing and collaborative workflows.


Deliver speed, reliability, low latency, file-level access, consistent bandwidth and share your media easily in a highly reliable solution.


NESTO SE offers a solution that combines the simplicity of NAS, the performance, and efficiency of solid-state flash drives, the capacity of hard disks, the familiarity and simplified management of the FreeNAS HTML Web user interface, and white glove enterprise support.


Content producers today demand more powerful, reliable, and high capacity storage than ever before. Traditional solutions may not deliver the speed needed for high-quality video formats or create massively complex storage islands that are often expensive, inefficient, and difficult to manage.

NESTO SE offers a solution that combines the performance and efficiency of solid-state flash drives, the capacity of hard disks and the familiarity and simplified management of the FreeNas HTML Web user interface at a price unheard of.


  • Hybrid Storage Pools
    Solid-state performance at spinning-disk capacity and cost. NESTO SE merges multi-layer non-volatile cache with high-density spinning disks. System RAM and boost flash memory are used to cache reads and writes while HDDs store the data resulting in an increased of performance and capacity scalability.
  • Self-Healing File System
    Data is verified and repaired in the cache before it ever reaches the disks. Data degradation on the disks is identified and repaired, forever preserving data as the first day.
  • Snapshots & Replication
    Out-of-the-box file version and restoration. Data is protected against unintentional alteration and can be bidirectionally replicated for backups or disaster recovery.
  • Thin and Thick Provisioning
    Define multiple datasets and distribute free space dynamically using quotas or rather reserve space for each dataset.
  • Hot-swap & Dual Power Supplies
    Hot-swap front-loading drive bays and redundant power supplies.
  • Web based Admin Software
    Streamlined HTML Web interface that provides simple management of the system.
  • Multiple storage services
    A full range of file and object protocols including NFS, CIFS/SMB, AFP and Simple Storage Service (S3).
