ZFS FOR LINUX FINALLY!

Link to this post 20 Aug 10

As we all know, ZFS is by far the best file system and so far was only usable over Solaris.

People have workarounds and solutions which are kind of 2nd tone replacements, 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.

We at KQ, have finally succeeded in porting ZFS to Linux ! No hidden surprises, we have indeed ported ZFS on Linux (the main one, not any workaround modes here!!! :)

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,

Once you fill the form, one of our representatives will be contacting you to assist you with the proceedings and arrange an interactive one on one demo with our ZFS expert.


As we are selecting a batch of 25 beta customers from different testing environments, please await your turn. To allow proper support bandwidth for beta customers, we have limited the batch to 25.
