Mac ZFS Source Code Released

ZFS has amazing feature set and now it is ported to Mac

ZFS file system developed by Sun for its UNIX operating system. ZFS presents a pooled storage model that completely eliminates the concept of volumes and the associated problems of partitions, provisioning, wasted bandwidth and stranded storage. Thousands of filesystems can draw from a common storage pool, each one consuming only as much space as it actually needs. The combined I/O bandwidth of all devices in the pool is available to all filesystems at all times.

Apple has ported ZFS from Open Solaris to the Mac OS X platform. You can download ZFS beta version here (via ./).

    ZFS can only be used under Linux via FUSE because of licensing.
