Can single-user OS X be far behind?
Here’s the official Apple announcement:
For business-critical server deployments, Snow Leopard Server adds read and write support for the high-performance, 128-bit ZFS file system, which includes advanced features such as storage pooling, data redundancy, automatic error correction, dynamic volume expansion, and snapshots.
The StorageMojo take
Cool! And only 2 years later than I’d predicted. I’m an optimist.
As I noted almost 2 years ago:
StorageMojo.com has devoted time to this issue because today’s computer business is largely driven by consumer computing, not enterprise computing. Putting a really modern integrated file and storage management system on a consumer OS would raise the bar for everyone else.
I stand by that.
Comments welcome, of course.
