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?

RAID 10 is not sufficient for large sata drives. Urecoververable read errors are a fact of life and the ability to recover data from either a second set of parity information or from reconstruct is the a must to get by a URE...

RAID 6 provides this, raid 10 does not...

Tripple mirror is another option...
