George Wilson describes a new feature of ZFS in Oracle Solaris 10 9/10.
Companies in today's ultra-competitive marketplace need agile, reliable IT environments to quickly, efficiently, and securely respond to business opportunities. Oracle's Sun storage solutions are built on open standards to work with existing infrastructures. They offer the performance, scalability and value needed to protect data and to derive the most strategic value from it.
Here are some of the folks who blog actively about storage at Oracle, listed roughly in order of popularity.
