With today’s announcement of Oracle Solaris Express 11 our choices for running a ZFS capable Operating System just got even more confusing. I wasn’t able to find a list of the build numbers these Operating Systems are based on all in one place, so I’m going to keep a chart of the choices here, and if readers will contribute in the comments I will keep the chart updated. The build number gives you a good idea of how recent the ZFS feature set is. If any of these become true forks with divergent code and feature sets we won’t be able to rely on a single build number to identify the features any longer.
Updated November 22, 2010 to include the KQ Infotech and Lawrence Livermore National Labs native ZFS on Linux:
|Oracle Solaris Express 11 2010.11||b151a||licensed for testing only, encrypted fs|
|OpenSolaris (last dev)||b134|
|Nexenta Core 3.0.1||b134+||Linux userland, CLI only|
|NexentaStor Community||b134+||12TB limit, web admin|
|NexentaStor Enterprise||b134 +||not free, web admin|
|FreeBSD 8.1||pool 15||no CIFS or iSCSI|
|Linux fuse 0.6.9||pool 23||low efficiency|
|KQ ZFS||b121? pool 26||Native Linux port|
|LLNL ZFS||b147 pool 28||Native Linux port|
|StormOS “hail”||based on Nexenta|
|Milax 0.5||b128a||small size|
|EON NAS||b130||embedded NAS|
Please contribute info, links to distros, etc. and I will keep this page updated.
(Update: I have added this table to the ZFS Wikipedia article, where all future updates will go)
