Hardware, Embedded Systems ACM's latest journal had an interesting article about RAID which suggested it might be time for triple parity raid. "How much longer will current RAID techniques persevere? The RAID levels were codified in the late 1980s; double-parity RAID, known as RAID-6, is the current standard for high-availability, space-efficient storage. The incredible growth of hard-drive capacities, however, could impose serious limitations on the reliability even of RAID-6 systems. Recent trends in hard drives show that triple-parity RAID must soon become pervasive."

Gee, why can't I use ZFS on my Linux severs?
Wait a minute, let me think...
CDDL... Not being able to reverse engineer a GPL'ed version of ZFS under Linux due to patents...

Gee, you are a Linux troll.

It always amazes me when these Linux zealots, without any hesitation, assume that something is either somehow bad or irrelevant if it is not part of Linux. And if it is part of Linux, it can never be bad or irrelevant. Gee.
