Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris It seems like we're really on the subject of filesystems and related technology the past few days. We had an interview with the man behind BeServed, an item on WinFS' current status, and now we - possibly - have news on ZFS coming to Linux. Possibly, because it's all speculation from here on out.

"A cloud storage system is useless to most people? that is so funny.

I believe you mean "pooled" storage system.

It is, if I need a 64 bit OS, 4G RAM and the "experimental" tag above my head. I will stick to what works, until this is ready, thanks.


You don't *need* a 64-bit OS, nor do you *need* 4 GB of RAM. A 32-bit OS with 1 GB of RAM is plenty to run ZFS with FreeBSD 7.x.

Obviously, the higher spec'd your box, the better it will run. Putting it on an SMP server with gobs of RAM and oodles of fast SATA/SCSI disks will obviously run better than a single-Celeron system with a pair of ATA66 disks.
