Linux Employees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have ported Sun's/Oracle's ZFS natively to Linux. Linux already had a ZFS port in userspace via FUSE, since license incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL prevent ZFS from becoming part of the Linux kernel. This project solves the licensing issue by distributing ZFS as a separate kernel module users will have to download and build for themselves.

Duh, btrfs has pool storage, patches to support other raid levels and end-to-end checksumming. Self-healing, deduplication and encryption will be added later once other basic features (shich as direct-IO) are added and stabilized.
