team ZFS enters the fray

Two members of the ZFS team have joined the blogging fray. Check out Matt Ahrens‘s and Val Henson‘s weblogs.

For the unintiated, ZFS is the brand new file system that’s going to be in Solaris 10. ZFS is incredibly fast, reliable, and easy to manage. I recently moved my home directory from out UFS file server to an experimental ZFS file server. Opening my (extensive) mail spool went from 20 seconds to 3; doing an ls(1) sped up by more than a factor of two in my home directory; and the repository of crash dumps I keep went from 40G to 4G. This is really cool technology both under the hood and from the point of view of users and administrators — stay tuned to their weblogs for all the details.
