Blog links, 12/2

A couple of cool blog posts from team Fishworks today:

  • Cindi has captured the Fishworks project as a visualized Code Swarm. Check out her blog for all the details.
  • Adam has written a lengthy post on the virtues of the Hybrid Storage Pool using flash as a cache as contrasted with the use of flash as a replacement for hard drives.
  • Late Addition: Brendan has posted some remarkable performance numbers and provides some useful pointers when evaluating performance.

Also of note is a blog post from Gene Ruth at the Burton Group:

Turns out Sun uses SSDs tailored both for write performance to handle an internal logging function and then read optimized SSD to act essentially as a really large cache. All wrapped around their open-source ZFS file system hidden within the storage subsystem. Sun is demonstrating technology leadership by tightly integrating SSD technology into a complete storage subsystem - yes others have done a pluggable replacement for a HDD, but that's fairly obvious and less then optimal.

Any date on when fiber channel (COMSTAR) will be supported?
