Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun's Ian Murdock gave a presentation about OpenSolaris at LugRadio Live this past weekend. He hopes to expose open source enthusiasts to unique Sun technologies by creating a cohesive distribution that will provide a complete environment that is adequate for day-to-day use. This will involve bringing together the Solaris operating system and a diverse assortment of open source community projects and "adding a package management system to hold all these pieces together," Murdock stated. The final release will take place in May and the distribution will adhere to a six-month release cycle, just like Fedora and Ubuntu."

but zfs cant keep data with powerloss like a real hw raid. if my fileserver loses power all data in the raidcontroller will containpower and unwritten data can be written during next boot.


ONLY if you hardware raid has a battery-backed cache...not likely any cheap VIA-based RAID solution is using a battery-backed cache.

I'll take ZFS any day over most RAID controllers...at least until you get into the high-end hardware RAID cards seemingly only affordable by businesses.
