Continuing with the theme of unearthing useful tidbits on the internet, I came across a post from Giovanni Toraldo about using GlusterFS with ZFS on Debian/Ubuntu Linux. Why would someone want to do this? With OpenSolaris’ future essentially over, ZFS’s future is on Linux, and there has been significant headway on the ZFS on Linux project. Disk filesystems like ZFS go hand-in-hand with GlusterFS, because they each bring different features to the table.
