General Development

ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in active development for over a decade. Recent development has continued in the open, and OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open community of developers, users, and companies improving, using, and building on ZFS. Founded by members of the Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and illumos communities, including Matt Ahrens, one of the two original authors of ZFS, the OpenZFS community brings together over a hundred software developers from these platforms.

ZFS plays a major role in Solaris, of course, but beyond that, has it found other major homes? In fact, now that we're at it, how is Solaris doing anyway?

avoids the Raid 5 'write hole'

and therefore ZFS has found favour in the FreeBSD based FreeNAS (and of course FreeBSD) for starters.

Personally - with a cheap 4 drive hardware raid enclosure and the sheer size of todays drives, I prefer the simplicity of Raid 10 for my own use
