ZFS is available on Linux today!  This talk will discuss the process of porting ZFS to Linux, including the challenges of interfacing with the memory allocator and VFS subsystems.  We will cover how companies and organizations are integrating ZFS on Linux into their products, including purpose-built storage appliances and general-purpose distros.  This talk will discuss the current development model for ZFS on Linux, and how Open ZFS will enable ZFS code and ideas to flow easily between the illumos, ZFS on Linux, and FreeBSD communities. In addition, we will present several important features and performance enhancements that were developed for Open ZFS, and also discuss forthcoming enhancements that are in the planning phase.
