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 can continue making OpenZFS an outstanding storage platform, with consistent reliability and functionality across all distributions.

The main technical goal of the OpenZFS project is to make it easier to share changes to ZFS between platforms. We have a number of efforts toward this:

  • A platform-independent mailing list for ZFS developers to review ZFS code and architecture changes from all platforms.
  • Make it easy to run both ztest and the ZFS test suite (TestRunner or STF based) on every platform
