Agenda NOSIG Meeting, October 1st 2013

Title: The Open ZFS project
Presenter: Matthew Ahrens, Delphix
Abstract:
The Open ZFS project will provide a common development hub for all platforms working with open source ZFS code.  This talk will discuss how Open ZFS will enable ZFS code and ideas to flow easily between the illumos, FreeBSD and ZFS on Linux communities.  It will cover how companies and organizations are integrating ZFS into their products, including purpose-built storage appliances and general-purpose distros.  In addition, I will present several important features and performance enhancements that were developed for Open ZFS, and also discuss forthcoming enhancements that are in the planning phase.
