Storage Blog Posts of Note

ZFS In The Wild, Part 5 - "It's been over a year since I last posted sightings of ZFS around the web, so it's high time I offered another list..." (read it over at Mark Musante's Multithreaded Musings)

It's a Nelson - Honeycomb 1.1.1 RRs - "Today is the day the Honeycomb 1.1.1 RRs. I've already blogged about this a few times. But we are finally ready to release this to our customers." - Peter Buckingham

XAM Java Binding Overview - "The eXtensible Access Method (XAM) is new kind of storage interface for storage devices that can handle a special type of data, called "Fixed Content". Version 1.0 is soon to be released, but there is a working draft available of the Architecture Specification, the C Language Binding and the Java Language Binding. It is this last document that this post covers. A good introduction to XAM is the beginning chapters of the Architecture specification, and that document covers the normative behavior required for implementations of the interface." - Mark Carlson


Taylor's Take Links - Taylor Allis rounds up storage stuff from all over the web.

The ABCs of Services " Need some OPA or PDQ anyone? A bit of SBL, a nip of RTPH?" - Amy O'Connor

ONC RPC program number list - "The IETF NFSv4 Working Group has been going through a lot of house cleaning lately in support of NFSv4.1. One of those items is an update of RFC 1831..." Spencer Shepler

Storage Blogs

Our list of storage bloggers continues to grow, so here's an updated set. Note that there's an aggregated RSS feed of all these blogs available in the Open Solaris Storage community.

Some of the fine folks who bring you Sun's Solaris storage software are also bloggers. Some of their blogs are technical, some are personal, most are a mix (as reflected in their categories/tags, included here for your convenience). We think you'll find them all interesting and/or useful. Happy reading!
