Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris It seems like we're really on the subject of filesystems and related technology the past few days. We had an interview with the man behind BeServed, an item on WinFS' current status, and now we - possibly - have news on ZFS coming to Linux. Possibly, because it's all speculation from here on out.

I am pretty sure that it works like a charm on my 2.8GHz 32bit P4 Xeon. I am also pretty sure that I get about 80MB/sec out of these old hard-drives with compression and 100MB/sec without compression enabled.
And I can tell you for sure that for my workload (a file-server for a 30 workstation domain) it worked just as fast when it had only 512 MB of RAM. It now has 2GB for some containers that run other applications, but it worked with only 512 MB of RAM.
