ZFS for OS X

Post by Mike1 » Mon Jan 14, 2008 9:22 am

Not bootable for OS X yet, but can now be used for storage:

Perhaps not practical yet for a music archive, but I suppose it's getting there.

I saw that too- I'm a bit hesitant to make my external 1 TB drive use ZFS at this point, though that is the goal!

Sounds good.

I guess Apple stuff is going to look very nice for home users who need a lot of storage with that new Time Capsule and the prospect of ZFS on it. Time Capsule seems to be a 802.11n wireless base station with up to 1 TB storage.

Too much money for me, but I can see the attraction, particularly for a household with several people each with a lot of data.
