I love how easy it is to get going! And the ability to use different size drives and still have redundancy.

 

I hope to see the ability to have multiple pools on the same server.

I love how expandable the platform is and the ability to deploy so much functionality.

 

I would like to see the ability to support more than 30 hard drives in multiple arrays in 2020.

I most like being able to add different size drives.

Feature I would like is that unraid remembers serial numbers and where they belong in the arrey if the drives are disconnected by mistake

1) Using Unraid meant I was able to hugely condense multiple physical servers and service into one box (ha/dr to a second) whilst keeping power usage to a minimum and heaat output low.

 

Something that I would welcome in 2020 would be some small improvements to the docker implementation, for example, visual updates for container grouping which could be collapseable.

Its really great already, but with a little more tweaking would tip it over the edge into awesome.

1.) Everything is easy and complex at the same time with unraid. It fits all sorts of users from beginners to pro’s.

2.) ISCASI would be a neat feature to have.

I really love the Docker template system and how it makes it easy to maintain a huge collection of configured containers that can persist across changing container sources and updates.

 

I'd love to see more in-app suggestions and warning flags for helping people make better decisions. About to set your cache drives to XFS instead of a BtrFS pool? There should be a quick prompt telling users what they're about to do and what the consequences are. About to make a BtrFS pool with multiple drives of different sizes? Explanation about BtrFS profiles and which to use. Adding hoards of in-app documentation can help people learn and avoid making catastrophic mistakes.

I like how easy is to create VMs.

I'd like to see KVM/QEMU with virtio-gpu virgl support.

I like using dockers to segment server roles and access to shares.

I would love to have an easier passthrough for videocards (for plex).

Simple docker container management.  (New to unRAID but that sold me!)

 

No idea what to add. It's great as it is.

One thing I like most about Unraid:
This one is easy - the community of course!
One thing I'd like to see added in 2020:
This one is a bit more difficult, since Unraid varies so much depending on what is required by the operator. Something I see asked for a lot is a proper remote access gui, rather than connecting via a vpn to your network - this would be handy, but if it isn't properly secured, it would also be asking for trouble. So, I'm going to suggest something different, and that is built in unraid server syncing, which would keep two systems at different locations in sync (at specified times, eg, end of the day). I'm sure there are guides and plugins on how to achieve this, but if it was made simple, with a setup wizard, that would be amazing.

I love the fact that I can just pop in a new drive and expand my storage and not have to rebuild anything. This is the main reason why I chose UNRAID and not FreeNAS. 

I would love to have a Discord notification built in. Also I would love to have off-site backups happen automatically to another UNRAID server.

What I like the most about unRAID is its versatility. One feature I wish in the future is the ability to make a cluster of 2 unRAID servers for redundancy.

i love the docker support an the easy way to install new stuff on the server. I tested freenas first and found that a bit harder to use. 

I would love to have cache pools, so i have have more ssds for VMs and plex metadata without touching the file caching pool etc.

I love UnRaid's flexability.  One thing I would like to see is better cache explaination (is it raid 0, raid 1) and what kind of expansion can be done with the cache.

Love the ease of everything... Backups, upgrading parity drives, etc. Great docker container support, etc

 

For 2020, would be great to be able to roll back plugin/docker updates easier. Oftentimes an update breaks them.

 

An integrated processes viewer would be cool too to track data usage, network usage, etc

Best thing: re-purposing drives of varied sizes as I decommission my raid servers, without worrying that a drive failure could result in losing the entire contents of my NAS.

 

Feature(s) I'd like to see:  man pages! (I support trying to do as much as possible via the GUI, but there'll always be something a power user wants to do which requires the command line.)  Speaking of things to add to the GUI, I'd like to be able to route network traffic from several docker containers through a single container hosting a VPN client. But, this requires named network interfaces for the containers. Creating and connecting these to containers is not currently possible through the GUI.

I love how it is so solid yet so easy to get up and running.

I'd love to get an integrated file management tool, rather than having to rely on krusader in a docker container.

The thing I like most about Unraid is the dedication to bettering the product and helping users from both Lime and the community.

 

The new feature I would like to see most is one I've seen advertised recently on a commercial NAS, and that is the ability to share space in a storage array (with a friend, family member, etc) for remote backup with the option to encrypt.

I love the simple to learn, yet massively powerful nature of Unraid.

Please add the option for multiple people to be notified by telegram agents

The thing I like the most is the easy to understand slackware base.

 

I'd really like to see officially supported user tools for building modules: dvb, nvidia, etc.

I like how easy Unraid is to run and maintain

 

I would like a cache setting that allows files to be on both cache pool and array.

What I like: having moved from Synology I liked smooth and reliable setup process, clear manuals and instructions. Flexibility is awesome.

 

What I would like to see added: more iOS apps and push Notification Center.

i like unRaid coz it is easy to use .

i wish if it have FreeIPA as it is a free and open source identity management system.

I love the flexibility and expandability and the fact that I can add drives of any size any time.

 

I would love to see native zfs support. Might go hand in hand nicely with multiple pools

I love that expanding the 'unraid' size is an absolute doddle. 

Would really like to see a better (native) way of handling FTP accounts.... Unraid server clustering would be nice too ;-)

 

Keep up the good work.
