ZFS Development

ZFS is a filesystem designed from the start to ensure the durability of your data. Its block-pointer based design allows ZFS to store the checksum of every record, verify those checksums as a routine maintenance operation, and ensure that only the correct data is returned to the application.Combined with its multi-tiered caching, transparent compression, market leading triple parity RAID, and ease of administration, ZFS provides an excellent platform for building both infrastructure and products. 

The Challenge

In 2001, the Z File System (or ZFS) saw the light of the day as a result of the collaboration between Matt Ahrens and Jeff Bonwick. Designed as a next-generation filesystem for Sun Microsystem’s Solaris, ZFS was a few years later ported to FreeBSD and Linux. Ever since, ZFS has been implemented in numerous large deployments at various enterprises around the world.

The greatest challenge lies in finding the right solution to your development problem. Introducing new featuring means interfacing with the complexity of the OpenZFS system, but also with the open source side of OpenZFS and ensuring smooth upstreams of code.

When ZFS was created, the aim was to create the last filesystem that the world of data will need – “the last word in filesystems”. Jumping on a 128-bit architecture, ZFS directly became an enterprise-ready open-source filesystem and volume manager with incredible flexibility and an uncompromising approach to data integrity. If OpenZFS is an integral part of your enterprise, we’re here to help.
