ZFS: Love Your Data - Neal Walfield, John Hopkins University

ZFS is (along with BTRFS) a next generation file system. ZFS improves
upon the reliability, flexibility, performance and scalability of
traditional file systems. ZFS better protects your data by hashing
stored data and making updates to the underlying drives atomic, which
RAID, by itself, cannot do. ZFS is flexible: it is a copy-on-write
file system, which enables inexpensive snapshotting of data sets.
This, in turn, enables quickly rolling back a data set to a given
snapshot or even forking a data set. ZFS also supports hierarchical
storage management: it can use an SSD to transparently cache reads.
Finally, ZFS is scalable: some existing installations have over a PB
of storage.

In this talk, Neal Walfield will present ZFS's features and
provide practical advice on how to deploy ZFS both at home and in the
business environment.
