ZFS Experts

The following people have volunteered to be resources help answer questions in their specific areas of expertise. The mailing list is also a general resource for code-related questions. Individuals listed alphabetically by last name:

Please add yourself here with a sentence about your experience with ZFS, a sentence about your areas of expertise, and a link to how to contact you (could be via your User: page on this site).

  • Matt Ahrens
    • Co-founded the ZFS project at Sun in 2001; designed & implemented many features including snapshot & clones, send and receive, scrub/resilver.
    • Broad knowledge of ZFS, but most expertise in DMU, DSL, and ZAP.
  • Chris Siden
    • Implemented zpool feature flags and background destroy of filesystems.
    • Most expertise in Feature Flags, ztest, and illumos development process.
  • George Wilson
    • ZFS developer since 2005; implemented single-copy ARC and many SPA-layer performance enhancements.
    • Most expertise in SPA (space maps, ZIO pipeline, block allocation, etc), ARC, and corrupt pool recovery.

  • Matt Ahrens: Open ZFS
  • Will Andrews: FreeBSD
  • Brian Behlendorf: Linux
  • Chris Brown: Scientific Linux
  • Pawel Dawidek (FreeBSD)
  • Justin Gibbs: President, FreeBSD Foundation
  • Darik Horn: Ubuntu
  • Jorgen Lundman: ZFS on MacOS
  • Martin Matuska: FreeBSD
  • Ken Merry: FreeBSD
  • Chris Siden: illumos
  • George Wilson: illumos
  • Richard Yao: Gentoo
  • Aron Xu: Debian

From Confluence:

  • Logos of the different OS communities and consumers: FreeBSD, illumos, gentoo, Debian, MacZFS, Nexenta, Linux distros, other distros
    • Getting as many company logos as possible would be great to show people that for-profit companies are dependent on this functionality: it is real and reliable.

What should we do with this page? Should we make a section for companies? Should we provide more details/links?

I'd suggest we use companies and organizations for contributing companies. And a separate page for distros. How do we decide what individuals should be listed here? People with edit privs on the webpage? :) How do we decide who edits?

One idea would be to list people who are willing to be listed as resources to help others in particular areas -- subject matter experts. That way we don't have to judge if anyone has contributed "enough" to be listed.
