ZFS on Mac OS X
Bring it on!
I’ve written about Sun’s extremely cool ZFS file system a few times in the past. Today there’s some good news for Mac users looking to take ZFS for a spin. Check out this message posted to the zfs-discuss mailing list earlier today by Eric Kustarz at Sun.
Here’s some exciting news!
Chris Emura, the Filesystem Development Manager within Apple’s CoreOS organization is interested in porting ZFS to OS X. For more information, please e-mail him directly at cemura at apple.com.
Speaking for the zfs team (at Sun), this is great news and we fully support the effort.
While I (still) eagerly await whatever shiny new file system Apple has up its sleeve, it’s nice to see that Apple is working towards adding ZFS interoperability as well. Self-healing storage, here I come!
