Re: Buzz Overload!
It says the opposite: "[RAID]disk failure likelihood during a rebuild increases with rebuild time"
If I understand correctly, more advanced filesystems like ZFS (and I suppose this "SmashFS") are much quicker to rebuild, because they know to only rebuild the data which was on the dead drive (and not the whole drive). And so they stress the remaining drives less.
Which begs the question - how is OneBlox better than the likes of ZFS and BTRFS, etc? (ZFS is designed to scale out to Zettabyte scale, hence the name)
