OpenZFS launch announcement

Postby dedanna1029 » 18 Sep 2013, 01:53

Today we announce OpenZFS: the truly open source
successor to the ZFS project.
ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in
active development for over a decade. Recent
development has continued in the open, and
OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open
community of developers, users, and companies
improving, using, and building on ZFS.


Anyone been following this?

I think it is the remains of Solaris - which seems pretty much dead these days...

I think I want to check it out more thoroughly. Am looking for a replacement for ReiserFS, which is very old but is still the file system that works best for me. Tried others, they just don't do for various reasons (slowness on my system on ext3/4, btrfs just plain buggy still, other various filesystems things not right). The problem is few support ReiserFS any more, and I'm not wanting to try Reiser4 - IIRC it's having maintenance issues, has has since Hans went into prison.
So, when I see something I haven't seen before in this area, I at least research it up. Should prove interesting.

I think Manjaro comes with Raiserfs3 it even was the primary choice when installing.

You can install Manjaro with it - some have had issues with grub 2 there though:

Yeah, oh gods, Grub2. I seriously wish they'd trash that thing.
But back to ReiserFS/ZFS, it won't be long before no one supports ReiserFS any more.
