Hardware, Embedded Systems ACM's latest journal had an interesting article about RAID which suggested it might be time for triple parity raid. "How much longer will current RAID techniques persevere? The RAID levels were codified in the late 1980s; double-parity RAID, known as RAID-6, is the current standard for high-availability, space-efficient storage. The incredible growth of hard-drive capacities, however, could impose serious limitations on the reliability even of RAID-6 systems. Recent trends in hard drives show that triple-parity RAID must soon become pervasive."

You worked on the original ZFS-FUSE implementation? Cool. Were you the original Google SoC developer?

There was some talk somewhere about ZFS coming to Linux natively, that someone was taking care of the patent and licencing issues. Do you know anything about that?
