    Post Zfs for mainstream linux finally!

    As we all know, ZFS is by far the best file system.

    People have workarounds and solutions which are kind of 2nd tone replacements to work on Linux, but either ways, all these solutions are not really good replacements as they either are not stable enough or lack some of the salient features of ZFS.

    KQ has ported ZFS to Linux and was a much awaited release since January 2010.

    We are releasing the closed beta in last week of August/first week of september and are looking for closed beta customers who can test it for free on some environments.

    Mail me at darshin@kqinfotech.com to register.

    Feel free to put forward any questions as well.



    Kind Regards,

    Darshin

    That sets the tone.

    Here's one: do you realize this is the Open-Source AMD/ATI Linux forum?

    Yeah.

    Firstly, am not a spammer.

    Secondly, I do realize that its AMD / ATI Linux forum.

    My motto, at the end of the day, is to let you ppl know that we have come up with the ZFS port on linux and its successfully working. Also, we are looking forward to ppl who can help us test the closed beta.

    does it matter which TV are you actually watching an AD on, or is it a hand held PDA or your iphone or a blackberry on which an sms on which an information is flashed.

    Dude, any guy who works as a sysadmin / storage admin, comes across this post on the website, he will know the value of it.

    And yeah, @droidhacker, dude, dont laugh over long awaited. We are not working on the FUSE version, thats the difference. People like you who have little knowledge of what I am really talking about, wont ever understand it.

    FUSE thing is a totally different world of talks and doesnt even belong to what am talking about. Thats why its long awaited.

    I know i pasted the thread in a forum where I was going to come across ppl with superficial, little or absolutely no knowledge on what am talking about, but am hopeful that this forum will also have some well evolved user.

    Cheers,
    Darshin

    @droidhacker, @ nanonyme,

    Guys, am not a spammer.

    Secondly, specially you @ droidhacker, do you even understand what am talking about ??

    FUSE is crap and the solution we have developed is not in FUSE.

    Thats why its long awaited, am not just bullshitting here, a lot of storage companies are keenly looking forward to this solution and only if you are related to the storage industry, will you know the real gem ZFS is! Nothing to laugh on ZFS being the best file system, hell it is! ! !

    I know there are a lot of people here on board who barely understand what I have written and are still here to comment on it, but am equally hopeful that people who really understand the term and terminology wont be taking this lightly.

    I know what this forum is about and what it belongs to, but I also know that a lot of guys who are involved with ZFS & Linux technologies are members of this forum and am actually wanting them to be involved in the discussion.

    Well you've just proven yourself to be a useless ignorant piece of work. FUSE too difficult for you to comprehend? TOUGH. If you can't appreciate FUSE, then I'm TOTALLY certain that you can't handle kernel programming.

    Here's one vote against EVER including ANY code you develop in the kernel.

    I never said too difficult to comprehend! Anyways, nothing against the alternatives. Sorry for using that language for FUSE. I too agree that was a mistake on my part to write that .

    I take back my words for FUSE @droidhacker Hope that cools you down a bit !

    Am not here to fight with people or downsize anyone. Am just here to let people know that we have put an effort in porting ZFS to linux, and now are almost on the verge of releasing the beta code.

    http://kerneltrap.org/node/8066#comment-251093 The patents are now held by Oracle and unless Oracle gives another announcement, nothing has changed as far as Linux kernel is considered. If you have a GPL implementation and implemented the patented things without Oracle's permission, they can and probably will sue you.

    It sounds like this is a continuation of this work:
    http://github.com/behlendorf/zfs/wiki

    They get around the CDDL problem by not distributing ZFS in the kernel. You have to download and build the kernel module separately. Their modifications to ZFS remain under the CDDL licence.

    They mention that KQ Infotech are working on the ZFS posix layer here:
