== Overview ==[[Newcomers | OpenZFS concepts]]
OpenZFS was A non-exhaustive list of [[announcement Features | announced in September 2013OpenZFS features]] as the truly '''open source''' [[History | successor to the ZFS project]]. Our community '''brings together developers''' from the illumos, FreeBSD, Linux, macOS, NetBSD, and Windows [[distributions | 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 Technical Resources ==[[distributions How to install OpenZFS]]:
