Welcome to OpenZFS

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, and OS X 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:

The high-level goals of OpenZFS are:

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

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

What's new?

October: video of Matt Ahrens' talk at NOSIG.

November: video and slides from the OpenZFS Developer Summit.

December 2013: video of the second OpenZFS Office Hours, hosted by George Wilson.
