of Silicon Valley Presents:



OpenZFS: The Future of Open Source ZFS Development


Date: Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Speaker: Matt Ahrens, Software Engineer, Delphix

Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments, 7:00 PM Presentation

Location: Cadence / Bldg 10, 2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA (map)


ZFS is a combined file system and logical volume manager originally designed by Sun Microsystems (now a part of Oracle). The features of ZFS include protection against data corruption, support for high storage capacities, data compression, snapshots and copy-on-write clones, continuous integrity checking and automatic repair, RAID-Z and native NFSv4 ACLs. The OpenZFS project provides a common development hub for all platforms working with open source ZFS code. This talk will discuss how OpenZFS enables ZFS code and ideas to flow easily between the illumos, FreeBSD, and Linux communities. It will cover how companies and organizations are integrating ZFS into their products, including purpose-built storage appliances and general-purpose distributions. In addition, it will highlight several important features and performance enhancements that were developed for OpenZFS, and also discuss forthcoming enhancements that are in the planning phase.


Speaker Bio

Matt Ahrens co-founded the ZFS project at Sun Microsystems in 2001, designed and implemented major components of ZFS including snapshots and remote replication, and helped lead Sun’s ZFS team for 9 years. Matt is now a software engineer at Delphix, where he works on ZFS for Delphix’s database virtualization appliance. He continues to improve ZFS, most recently working on i/o performance, as well as coordinating open-source ZFS development across companies and platforms. Matt founded the OpenZFS community, a collaboration among FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X, and illumos ZFS developers. Matt has a degree in Computer Science from Brown University.
