Screencast: ZFS Basics

I started to record various screencasts for OpenSolaris to evangelize different features of Solaris/OpenSolaris and make it easier for people to discover how to use these features. The first demo I created shows the basics of using ZFS. The screencast requires Flash player and contains audio as well. Enjoy!

I'm glad that I've found your weblog, that screencast seems very interesting to me. In the next few days I'm going to change ubuntu to open solaris, so all of this is very helpful. Please keep on posting =].

@lmk_PL: I've been learning OpenSolaris for a few months, but I still use Ubuntu at work and home. In my opinion it's difficult to leave Linux for OpenSolaris right now. I hope it can be possible soon.

Roman, thanks a lot for that great screencast! I'm waiting for next :)

I remember you showed us more interesting OpenSolaris features while your presentation at Warsaw Unixalia 2008 Conference in the last days of August.

More screencasts are coming soon (with the 2008.11 launch)! :)

Roman, `zfs list` command doesn't display snapshots now. I didn't know about it and it was confusing for me. Please see the thread at zfs-discuss mailing list (http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=83391&tstart=0)

Yes, this behaviour has changed recently.
