This Easy Visual-Guide Simply Shows How to Install the Solaris Z File-System (ZFS) from Source on Fedora Linux 16 64-bit KDE 4 Desktop.

With ZFS everything you Find Complicated about Managing File Systems and Volumes Is Gone: you Do Not have Any More to format, newfs, mount, edit /etc/vfstab, fsck, growfs, metadb, metainit

The Solaris ZFS File System is a Revolutionary file system that fundamentally Changes the Way file systems are administered.

ZFS is a Reliable File-System that Use the Copy-on-write Update Model so to Ensures that its Data is always Consistent on disk.

ZFS uses the Concept of Storage Pools to manage physical storage Instead, to Rely on a Physical Device.

ZFS Eliminate Volume Management altogether. Instead, of forcing you to create Virtualized Volumes, ZFS Aggregate Devices Into a Storage Pool. So File Systems Are No Longer Constrained to Individual Devices, Allowing them to Share Disk Space with All File Systems in the Pool. You No Longer Need to Predetermine the Size of a File System, As File Systems Grow Automatically within the Disk. When New Storage is Added, All File Systems within the Pool can Immediately Use the Additional Disk Space.
