The FreeBSD Migration To OpenZFS Is Still Looking To Be A Great Change
FreeBSD developer Allan Jude presented at the EuroBSDCon 2019 conference last month in Norway on the OpenZFS + FreeBSD combination.
Jude's presentation goes over the ZFS/OpenZFS history, the handling of features, and work being done like adding Zstandard compression to ZFS, potential compression by default, fast clone deletion, and much more. There are also various efforts around further improving cross-platform compatibility as well as upstreaming work.
Those interested in FreeBSD and/or ZFS can see Allan's slide deck from EuroBSDCon.
