Re: Confusing a server filesystem and enterprise storage again
"...Confusing a server filesystem and enterprise storage again..."
What do you mean? These Enterprise storage systems are basically just a server with lots of RAM and CPU, and some flash/SSD based caches, and some SATA disks or SAS disks. They just run some special software. Even EMC and NetApp confirms this, but they also add in hardware raid cards into the mix.
So where is the difference between a enterprise storage system, and these ZFS storage systems? Virtually none. Oracle sells their big 7420 Petabyte servers that beat NetApp in price and performance, and they are exactly as I have detailed: server running special software. In Oracles case it is Solaris/ZFS. Tegile does this too. And both are Enterprise. There are people buyilding similar servers by themselves, running Solaris / ZFS.
Just build a heavy server and run ZFS on it, and you are basically done. (Not quite, but almost like this)
