an independent review of ZFS
Some of the best reviews I’ve found online have been at AnandTech, on SSD & SSD to displays and anything else computer related, now AnandTech have done a review of ZFS.
From a quick read this morning they’ve done a thorough review of using ZFS both from OpenSolaris and Nexenta compared to their current Promise storage system.
I’m always impressed when folks take the time to understand, investigate, review and learn from testing. They even set up a website from their progress and learnings: http://www.zfsbuild.com/ As they say: “a friendly guide for building ZFS based SAN/NAS solutions”
Personally, I can only hope that now that the ZFS lawsuit, between NetApp and Sun/Oracle, is settled that ZFS finds its way back into Mac OS X 😉
