The new filesystem is being considered by OpenBSD as an alternative to ZFS that is simpler to port and maintain. HAMMER2 is supposed to be more portable, offering a BSD-licensed alternative to ZFS (license confusion, not trivial to port, poor documentation for end users) and btrfs (dissapointing stability and adoption, less pronounced featureset, possibly not as portable?).
