I was originally planning to blog about RAID-Z today, but I can't.
There's been such a tremendous outpouring of energy and passion for the
ZFS launch today that the only thing I can think about is this: thank you.
have been tireless in their efforts to get the
OpenSolaris ZFS community
up and running.
has rounded up all the
ZFS blog entries
from today, which run the gamut
from informative to surprising to downright funny. And for me,
as the papa bear, every one of them is also personally touching.
Thank you for using ZFS during the early days, for providing insights
on how to make it better, and for taking the time to write up your
personal experiences and spread the word.
I'm incredibly proud of the ZFS team, and deeply grateful: no one person
can do something on this scale. Thank you for making the leap of faith to
join me in this effort, to create something out of nothing, to take an idea
from vision to reality. It has been an amazing and wonderful experience.
To Cathy, Andrew, David, and Galen: thank you for support, encouragement,
patience, and love. Six years is a long time to wait for Daddy to finish
his project. But somehow, you managed to understand how important this
was to me, and for you, that was good enough: you've been a constant source
of energy the whole way. I can't imagine doing it without you.
Awww, now I'm getting all weepy.
Please come back tomorrow and I promise we'll have that chat about RAID-Z.
