CoreOS vs FreeNAS: What are the differences?
CoreOS: Linux for Massive Server Deployments. CoreOS is designed for security, consistency, and reliability. Instead of installing packages via yum or apt, CoreOS uses Linux containers to manage your services at a higher level of abstraction. A single service's code and all dependencies are packaged within a container that can be run on one or many CoreOS machines; FreeNAS: An operating system that can be installed on virtually any hardware platform. It is the simplest way to create a centralized and easily accessible place for your data. Use it with ZFS to protect, store, backup, all of your data. It is used everywhere, for the home, small business, and the enterprise.
CoreOS and FreeNAS can be categorized as "Operating Systems" tools.

As the basis of our new infrastructure, we use CoreOS as a reliable solution for our docker-server-instances. We plan to deploy all our servers as individual docker containers to make use of the extensive possibilties offered in terms of isolation, resource-managemant (cgroups) and scalability.
