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.

So File Systems Are No Longer Constrained to Individual Devices, Allowing them to Share Disk Space with All File Systems in the Pool.
