Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

I hope OpenIndiana/Ilumos switch to HammerFS. I also hope that Illumos abandons the OpenSolaris DDK and switch to a port of IOKIT for easier development and sharing of knowledge with OSX users. Personally I wished for a port of XNU open source parts to Illumos with filling missing bits with OpenSolaris.

hammerfs is what, 5 years and millions of dollars behind zfs? so I don't think it is appropriate to compare them like that. unless you're talking fantasy land style. like fabio romance fiction.

Are you mad? HammerFS is most probably not safe, and might corrupt your data.

Researchers show that ZFS is safe with respect to bit rot and Silent corruption.
