Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "When eWEEK Labs first reviewed Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 early last year, we were impressed by the new facilities the operating system offered for better serving up applications and making the most of the SPARC and x86 hardware on which it runs. With this summer's Solaris 10 update, labeled 6/06, Sun has significantly improved on its already excellent operating system with the addition of the much-heralded Zettabyte File System."

The Oracle ASM is capable of rearranging used blocks and it is possible to reduce storage pool size. ASM had something like hotspot movement, don't know, if it works. At the present moment zfs can only increase the size.

Most probably Sun will include the ability to shrink a zfs partition. I am waiting for it - freedom. Maybe they will be able to address some of taos's concernes about performance unpredictability.

zfs & hardware raid. Maybe Sun figures, that if you need a hardware raid, then most of the times you could also buy a storage box with a hw raid.

zfs is imho at the present moment not with all the features planned for it. Maybe we should wait.

OsX - I really would like to have some zfs counterweight to the linux hype.
