Brahim, the lead developer of FlexRAID, has annouced NZFS, Not ZFS. The current FlexRAID implementation of storage pooling has several key advantages over other storage spooling solutions, but things are getting even better with NZFS.
NZFS will be powered by FlexRAID’s RAID∞ engine and provides pooling below the filesystem, i.e. a NZFS storage pool will need to be formatted with your favorite filesystem be it NTFS, FAT, EXT.
Although there’s no commonality with ZFS, NZFS borrows a number of concepts from ZFS and its RAID suite as it will bring many of the ZFS features such as checksum, ZIL, de-dup, copy-on-write, etc. to both Windows and Linux.
We’re looking forward to testing this in the future.
