The future of ZFS in FreeBSD

submited 19 December 2018

There is a talk about using ZFS on Linux as base for FreeBSD's ZFS. This port would provide FreeBSD users with multi modifier protection, project quotas, encrypted datasets, allocation classes, vectorized raidz, vectorized checksums, and various command line improvements.

Before ZoF can be merged back in to ZoL several steps need to be taken:

  • Integrate FreeBSD support into ZoL CI
  • Have most of the ZFS test suite passing
  • Complete additional QA testing at iX
