Its in-house Ironwolf Health Management (IHM) is a 1up from S.M.A.R.T. functions. This emphasis on Prevention, Intervention and Recovery. To use IHM, it needs to work with IHM-enabled NAS units. At the time of writing, it listed ASUSTOR, QNAP, OSAN, Synology, Terra Master and Thecus. There is no support for desktop systems, nor FreeNAS functions- yet.
