Thing I like: Everything about it, but since the questions is about a specific thing I guess I'm going with how very little maintenance is needed for the system to work properly.

 

Thing I'd like to see: Some form of block level data de-duplication and plug in play glusterfs integration.

Unraid is easy and versatile. That’s why I love Unraid.

 

I’d like to have persistent xml edit when switching from manual to GUI edits.

I love the ease of use and community.

 

I would like to see more options for the UI.

I love the ability to mix and match drives. More recently, the plethora of docker and VM options got me to purchase a second license. It's just too easy to set up, haha.

 

I would like to see the ability to have multiple drive pools or manage multiple servers from a single pane of glass.

Hello, I have unraid on 2 systems and love how it works it's easy and convenient. 

The one thing I can say I love the most is the community. So many apps and docker support. Well built up community of genuinely good people.

 

The one thing I'd love to see added is support for fusion io and memory io drives. These are nvme pcie ssd type drives primarily used as super fast cache. The have amazing endurance in the petabytes. 

Driver support and native software support would be amazing. One could wish.

 

Thanks unRaid and Limetech.

I like that unRAID allows me to have redundant disk arrays using disks of various sizes so I don't have to throw away old smaller disks I have.

 

I would like to see built-in unRAID support for letsencrypt certificates.

Awesome! The best thing about Unraid is that it's easy tot learn, but hard to master. In a good way: there's just so much it can do when you really learn all the advanced stuff, yet it is so easy to get started!

 

Thing I'd like to see in 2020: built-in backup tools!

I love how easy it is to spin up a VM and add dockers

I would love to see a little more granular control of VM settings and not not have to directly edit xml for most VMs I create

I love how Unraid allows you to add additional storage conveniently.

 

I would like to see more error handling to help diagnose issues related to docker and applications.

Best thing is defo the VM support, it's amazingly well done. I'd love to see an integrated nginx reverse proxy, not having to use a docker but having it built in, ready to go and easy to configure !

Ease of setup- as a total noob I was able to get everything up and running in an afternoon.

Support for more than 2 parity drives would be awesome. As my drives get older it becomes a bigger and bigger concern.

I picked unraid for my server specifically because of how easy it is to add drives without needing to worry about how data is allocated!

 

 

For 2020, I'd like to see some native usage reporting. For example, CPU usage per docker, how much RAM each APP is using. Similar to Grafana, but something native.

I love how easy it is to setup, first time docker and server user and it was a (relatively) easy process!

 

Would love to see multiple drive pools & native back-up options

I love the flexibility of adding drives in any size and order as budget allows. 
 

I would love to see a way to expand beyond one server and beyond the 26 drive limit. unRAID is so convenient, but unfortunately I’m outgrowing my original server.

I like the almost seamless docker functionality, and I'd like to see a higher drive maximum in the future. Also possibility for backup USB drive support in case of main USB drive failure, without having to contact you guys to activate it. Just invalidates the first one.

I love how simple and easy it was. Have done a few linux servers in the past and i dreaded everytime i had to start a new one. Never again.

 

only request is to keep being awesome into 2020!

I like how unraid is just keeps giving new features! Always adding extra value through extra functions! Very rare for other commercial software to keep adding extra functionality for no extra cost!

 

I'm especially looking forward to multiple cache pools! Can't come soon enough!

The best thing is the ability to have mixed drive-sizes, with specific drives being visible individually, so I can upgrade drives one at a time and keep the system running while it rebuilds the new, increased-size, drive.

 

The thing I'd like to see added is more support for external drives, using FireWire, USB 3 etc. So I can have fast access to drives that aren't in the array but need to be network-accessible.

The best thing about unraid is how versatile it is, it has been used for various uses on a lot of the top tech YouTube channels.

 

I would like to see an integrated VPN solution fleshed out in 2020 so we can securely administrator our servers outside of the home.

What is wrong with the WireGuard VPN option built into Unraid 6.8?
