I love how easy it was to get started. I was a real novice two years ago. 

I would love to have discord as a notification agent (or a configurable webhook agent), so i can have pretty embeds

I love that it's not freenas, meaning I can add one drive at a time and it has native docker support.

I would love if it stopped trashing my SSD's.

It’s a toss up between what I like most: 1: LimeTech is responsive to the community 2: the community is a fantastic support apparatus

 

the thing I’d like to see added actually demonstrates the first point because it is going to be added: multiple cache polls! (Maybe I should say all ssd array instead?)

I appreciate its functionality whilst still being a very powerful learning tool.

 

I think a Linux usb creator is a frequently missed feature.

I love how easy it has been to convert friends and co-workers to unraid.

 

SSD array support would be nice.

I love the ability to add one drive at a time in unraid, and a feature I’d love to see is a native and secure remote access solution for outside the home.

Love the ease of use, the UI gets even better with every release, making it so easy to use.

 

One thing I would like to see added is a sync feature so I can setup another server to sync my data/configs to.

How can you only choose one thing I like best about unraid??  That's almost impossible!

 

Virtual Machines!!!!

 

About what I would like in 2020,  If you kept it just the way it is, I'd be very content.

The thing I like the most about Unraid is the ability to use my own hardware.

 

In 2020 I'd like to see Unraid improve support for USB 3.0 where we don't see people constantly having to recommend USB 2.0 devices and/or ports.

OMG hardest contest EVER!!  Name 1 thing... well.. the one thing, if I must.  The community!  UNraid was born from it and is sustained today because of it.  I love this OS so much I am about to build my 2nd 40tb beast!   Just keep on being awesome!!

I like how functional the GUI is. Makes it super easy to configure and use. 
I’d love to see integrated Nvidia support for easier access to the gpus in docker.

Greetings I would like to win a prize from you, I would like to create a NAS server with your operating system and I have tried other systems and there is nothing better than unraid it is easier to handle and I think it is super stable and I would like that it was my first  NAS system that I'm going to set up official.

I love always being able to expand my storage pool just by adding a drive and adding it to my array. 
 

I would love to see clustering features in the future to be able to tie together machine resources for containers and VMs.

Ease of use for being able to plug in drives and just add them to the array. Was running hardware raid before moving to unraid.

 

Agree with rox on the on the what I'd like to see... custom webhooks to do fancy embeds.

Best thing about unraid is definitely the community engagement, everyone does a terrific job in responding to issues quickly. If I were to add something in 2020, it'd probably be to have multiple unraid pools on the same server.

I absolutely love how easy it is to deploy docker containers....UnRaid was kinda my gateway into the whole docker system. I've always been a linux guy, but before dockers were a dark area for me. 

One thing I would absolutely love to be implemented into UnRaid is "High-Availability" both for dockers and the filesystem. I host websites and data storage (NGINX wordpress sites and Nextcloud) for friends and family. I run 4 UnRaid servers right now...each have their intended purposes, but it would be nice to set them up in cluster nodes, that way if I need to shut one down for maintenance or something....it doesn't bring everything down with it.

  • I love this community, and the ease of startup (as a nearly complete noob, got my first VM up and running yesterday!)
  • I would like to see some native USB creation tools within the GUI

I love knowing my data is protected. 
 

I would like to see options for multiple servers and high availability. Starting with VM and containers. I’d love to replace my Proxmox boxes with Unraid.

Stability! I've had half year plus uptimes with unraid and the only reason it didn't continue was because I chose to reboot to upgrade the os. This answer is boring because I also love the ease of setup, maintenance, and power features when desired, but stability is the most important for me.

 

I'd love to see additional btrfs pools in unraid so I can dedicate one to vms and one to normal cache duties. I've done this via the command line and unassigned devices, but would be great to get native support for this feature.

I work in IT and I love that unRAID for the most part just works.  These days I hate having to come home and keep troubleshooting stuff.

 

I'd like to see the integration of actual raid 0 1 5 technology.

Thanks for doing the giveaway.

 

My favorite thing has always been the flexibility, being able to mix and match different disk sizes and easily being able to add/remove disks from the pool.

 

I would love to see multiple cache pools, IE a cache pool for only my vm's and dockers and then another cache pool for just acting as a write cache

I like the ease of use, and it is much better than Xpenology and Freenas
I have just been working on it for a month now and it is easy and I am also going to buy a license.

What should be included as a notification agent, for example, and I would like to see added to the OS is support for SSD drives..
