ZFS On FLOSS Weekly

Aaron and Leo on FLOSS Weekly

Be sure to download FLOSS Weekly this Saturday to hear myself and colleague David Brittle talk about ZFS. I happened to be in San Francisco this week and was able to be "in studio" at the TWiT cottage for the interview. ZFS is a big part of Sun's Open Storage strategy so it is important to understand what it is and how it can be used. Tune in to find our more ...

Great job. Well worth the listen!

Very interesting interview, I learned some new stuff about ZFS that had somehow escaped me before (particulary the versioning stuff).

During the podcast you talked about the video editing software that you use for your video blog, something like Similara. I've been looking for it but can't find it. Can you post a link to it?

Thanks.

Sure. It's Cinelerra. You can find packages for Ubuntu and other distributions at http://cvs.cinelerra.org. Be sure to watch my tutorials at http://www.thesourceshow.org. Also, keep an eye on Lumiera at http://www.lumiera.org. This is a fork project and should be a step up from Cinelerra when it is ready.

Just came across your blog entry on ZFS and FLOSS Weekly. I will definitely have a listen on this topic. I'm also wondering something sorta technical about ZFS:

Will it protect and encrypt an entire system and all its drives even the OS system drive with an OS other than Solaris or OpenSolaris, say for example Ubuntu?

Sorry if this is off topic! TIA

Horace,

ZFS encryption is currently under development. You can track the progress at http://opensolaris.org/os/project/zfs-crypto/. There is a fuse based version of ZFS for Linux. I use it on Ubuntu Server at home to store all my digital media.

"Just what is Open Storage anyway?" This is the question I am trying to answer on this site. How am I doing?
