A few weeks ago I wrote about ZFS, and I was so impressed about it.
I tried it with ZFS-FUSE. Let is be here a non documented, and short description, how to get it on your Ubuntu box.
Let's make a directory for it and download the latest tar.gz from the site http://rainemu.swishparty.co.uk/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=zfs;a=summary and then:
tar -xzvf *.tar.gz
apt-get install libattr1-dev libfuse-dev
Now you have the commands zpool and zfs. On the site: http://flux.org.uk/howto/solaris/zfs_tutorial_01 there is a nice ZFS tutorial.
I must say that ZFS isn't tat great as I thought. I can do more with software RAID and LVM in my Linux box. Ok, I have to admit, that most times ZFS is easier, than my solution, but there are some great drawbacks. The most hurting for me tat you can't decrease the size of your ZFS pool, what I can easily do with LVM.
But anyway it is a great filesystem, and I happy to get it know a bit, and it is a possible solution with ZFS-FUSE under Linux, thanks those who worked and still working on it.
