OpenZFS brings together developers and users from various open-source forks of the original ZFS on different platforms and we're always looking to grow our community. There are a multitude of ways to contribute to the project and contributors are happy to help newcomers. As we add diverse perspectives, our community becomes richer, and we're committed to creating an environment where all people feel welcome.  [[Newcomers | Information for new contributors is available here.]]
  
OpenZFS is open-source storage software which encompasses the functionality of traditional filesystems, volume managers, and more. Our community brings together developers from the illumos, FreeBSD, Linux, and MacOS [[platforms]], and a wide range of [[companies and organizations]].  By working together, we will continue making OpenZFS an outstanding storage platform, with consistent reliability and functionality across all [[distributions]].

OpenZFS is the truly open source successor to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZFS ZFS] project originally developed by [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Microsystems Sun Microsystems] for the Solaris operating system. The source code for ZFS was released under the [http://opensource.org/licenses/CDDL-1.0 CDDL] in 2005 as part of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opensolaris OpenSolaris] operating system, and was subsequently ported to other [[platforms]]:

After OpenSolaris was discontinued in 2010 updates to ZFS on Solaris were no longer released as open source. In response the illumos project was founded as an open source fork of OpenSolaris which has continued the development of OpenZFS with many new [[OpenZFS Features|features and performance improvements]].

There are a multitude of ways to contribute to the project and contributors are happy to help newcomers.

Overview

OpenZFS was announced in September 2013 as the truly open source successor to the ZFS project. Our community brings together developers from the illumos, FreeBSD, Linux, macOS, NetBSD, and Windows platforms, and a wide range of companies that build products on top of OpenZFS.

OpenZFS is an outstanding storage platform that encompasses the functionality of traditional filesystems, volume managers, and more, with consistent reliability, functionality, and performance across all distributions:

OpenZFS Developer Summit 2020

Planning is underway for the eighth annual OpenZFS Developer Summit. The event will be Sept 29-30 (Tue-Wed) at Delphix HQ in Redwood City, CA.

We've decided to hold the event outside of San Francisco and use Delphix HQ in order to allow for the financial flexibility to transition to an online-only event if COVID-19 is still a significant concern as we get close to the event. Luckily Delphix HQ has access to a theater, event space, and a place to hold the hackathon.

Project Goals

The high-level goals of OpenZFS are to:

  • raise awareness of the quality, utility, and availability of open source implementations of ZFS,
  • encourage open communication about ongoing efforts to improve open source ZFS, and
  • ensure consistent reliability, functionality, and performance of all distributions of ZFS.

The main technical goal of OpenZFS is easier sharing of code between platforms.

We accept donations to cover our ongoing costs.
