ZFS on Linux is "ready for wide scale deployment
Developer Brian Behlendorf has announced the release of version 0.6.1 of the native ZFS on Linux port. After over two years in experimental status, the developers now say the file system "is ready for wide scale deployment on everything from desktops to super computers." The native ZFS on Linux is based on the Solaris Porting Layer (SPL) which emulates underlying features of Solaris in the Linux kernel.
In contrast to the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) implementation of ZFS, the native port delivers better performance by implementing the filesystem as a kernel module.
