Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

Now it's looking ever more likely that ZFS will be binned as Oracle already have a vested interest in BtrFS, Linux (due to CDDL vs GPL licensing) favours BtrFS and even Apple have dropped their implementation in OS X.


You do realize that if Oracle wanted to include ZFS in to Linux, they can GPL the whole kit tomorrow. They could stop funding/working on BtrFS, GPL ZFS and Linux could run it merry way with ZFS.
