Oracle Solaris ZFS

 Hardware and Software Engineering to Work Together

Oracle Solaris 11 Express delivers many path breaking innvovations in Operating System technology for you to build, deploy and manage many complex, mission critical, uninterruptable enterprise services.

Oracle Solaris ZFS offers dramatic advance in data management with an innovative approach to data integrity, near-zero administration, and a welcome integration of file system and volume management capabilities. The centerpiece of this new architecture is the concept of a virtual storage pool, which decouples the file system from physical storage allowing for much more-efficient use of storage devices.

KEY FEATURES :-

  1. Rock-solid data integrity: Data protected by 256-bit checksum and data consistency maintained at all times
  2. No silent data corruption ever: ZFS self-healing feature automatically repairs corrupt data
  3. Mind-boggling scalability: 128-bit file system, 16 billion-billion times the capacity of 32- or 64-bit file systems
  4. Breathtaking speed: Proven, cutting-edge technologies combined to optimize performance
  5. Near-zero administration: Complicated storage administration is automatic and simplified

My Presentation Oracle Solaris ZFS. Try it out. Simple and easy to follow steps.

Comments:

I have a zfs question that is pretty key but seems to not be definitively answered anywhere in the documentation : Can you recover a ufsdump of a filesystem using ufsrestore into a zpool?

Everything I can find suggests ufsrestore can write to any filesystem Solaris can write to so this I think this will work. I'd just just like to see it in the official Oracle docs. After all there will be plenty of people needing to migrate data like this - it's not an unusual need.

Thanks.

Dear Bob,

Thank you for posting Comments on MyFirstBlog.

You may want to refer the Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration (official) Guide for migration details. There are certain considerations one needs to make based on type of the file system to be restored.

Please let me know if it was useful to you.

Thanks & regards
