Cloud service with the ZFSSA

Everyone is talking about Clouds. Cloud this, cloud that, cloudy cloud cloud.

What is it? To begin with, there's no such thing. If you store your data "on the cloud" it's still being stored SOMEWHERE by SOMEBODY. It's just that you're not storing it yourself. You are paying someone else to do it. Well, they are storing it on real hardware. Real servers and storage. Then, they are charging you to use their hardware (or maybe giving you the space for free and charging advertisers).

Now it turns out the ZFSSA is an excellent storage device for Cloud services. There are many cloud service software products out there. OpenStack is one of them, and it's open source, so that's cool. Icehouse is the newest version of it. Version 9 I believe. There is a plug-in for OpenStack for the ZFSSA.

My Colleague, Roden Kofman, has a new blog showing how this plugin works with the ZFSSA. Check it out here: https://blogs.oracle.com/ronen/entry/running_openstack_icehouse_with_zfs
