What We're Reading: AVS and ZFS blog posts

This morning while trolling through the blogsphere we encouterned some enlightning blog posts.

Storage, Storage, Storage - "Using ZFS you can now build high-capacity, redundant storage systems for as little as $.25-.50/GB, which is pretty close to street price for the drives themselves. Alternatively, you can build tier-1 high-performance redundant storage systems, roughly equivalent in quality to enterprise solutions, for as low as $2/GB, which is practically unheard of." - Randy Bias from neoTactics.

Less known Solaris Features: Point-in-time copy with AVS - Joerg Moellenkamp presents a detailed tutorial on the enterprise critical feature Availability Suite (blog).
