Linux 2.6.35-rc2

,----[ Quote ]
| So -rc2 is out there, and hopefully fixes 
| way more problems than it introduces.


ZFS for the Linux kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| Developers at the Lawrence Livermore 
| National Laboratory have cooperated with 
| Oracle to port large parts of Solaris' ZFS 
| file system to the Linux kernel. Their aim 
| is to make the distributed Lustre file 
| system available under Linux with ZFS.
| [...]
| Native ZFS for Linux can be compiled with 
| kernel versions up to 2.6.32; among the 
| tested platforms are the 2.6.32 kernel in 
| Fedora 12 and in the beta version of Red 
| Hat Enterprise Linux 6, as well as the 
| 2.6.18 kernel in RHEL 5. The build 
| requires the Solaris Porting Layer and a 
| 64-bit Linux system.


Uptake of native Linux ZFS port hampered by license conflict

,----[ Quote ]
| A group of open source software developers 
| working at Lawrence Livermore National 
| Laboratory (LLNL) have implemented a 
| native Linux port of Sun's ZFS filesystem. 
| Although the code is functional and 
| available for download (but not 
| production-ready yet), it cannot be merged 
| upstream or shipped in binary form with 
| the Linux kernel due to a licensing 
| conflict. Sun distributes the OpenSolaris 
| source code under its own Common 
| Development and Distribution License 
| (CDDL), which is incompatible with GNU's 
| General Public License (GPL).


Tuesday, 15th June. Michael Dorrington, âGNUâs Not Linux: kFreeBSD and Hurd kernels for the GNU Systemâ

,----[ Quote ]
| This talk is by Michael Dorrington on the 
| alternative kernels of kFreeBSD and Hurd 
| to Linux for the GNU System. The talk will 
| explain what a kernel is and its role in a 
| system, it will explain the GNU and Linux 
| in GNU/Linux, it will then investigate 
| GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/Hurd including 
| showing them running. If you are 
| interesting in Linux or Free Software or 
| GNU or FreeBSD or Hurd then this talk 
| should be of interest to you.



Nexenta Leverages OpenSolaris and ZFS for Enterprise Storage


10 Reasons Why ZFS Rocks

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun's (NASDAQ: JAVA) open-source ZFS file system
| has some amazing features. It was originally
| designed for Solaris and unveiled in 2005, but
| you'll also find it in OpenSolaris and related
| distributions. In the future it may well become
| a popular file system to run with Linux and BSD
| as well.


FreeNAS 0.7 adds ZFS support

,----[ Quote ]
| The FreeNAS developers have announced the
| availability of version 0.7 of FreeNAS (code
| named Khasadar), a FreeBSD-based Network-
| attached storage (NAS) UNIX-like server
| operating system. FreeNAS includes a full Web
| configuration graphical user interface (GUI)
| and supports the FTP, NFS, CIFS (Samba), AFP,
| rsync and iSCSI protocols and software RAID
| (0,1,5).
