Open-ZFS For Linux

ZFS – the last word in filesystems ZFS is a new kind of filesystem that provides simple administration, transactional semantics, end-to-end data integrity, and immense scalability.
Crossmeta is proud of providing  own  port of OpenZFS project well optimized for prominent Enterprise Linux 7 with:

  • Advanced memory optimization by sharing of ARC memory with Linux native page cache, thereby mmap applications will not double-commit memory. This unique feature is available only on our Crossmeta ZFS for Linux.
  • Well integrated snapshot access in kernel from hidden .snap control directory, even over NFS, without any helper programs to automount.
  • Simple package distribution with one kernel module zfs.ko and static CLI tools just the way it was in OpenSolaris.
  • High performance ZVOL block layer.
  • Well integrated iSCSI option with our software virtualization engine,  so that ZVOL API can be invoked directly from kernel with zero-copy provided by ZFS
