In this series we explore various different filesystems.

On the show today, I will tell you about how I use the ZFS file system on my home server. I also go into some details about how I came to use the ZFS, especially under Linux. I also tell you about a certain pitfall I ran into with the hard drives I chose for ZFS. And finally, I will refer you back to HPR episode 1600 by JWP for more information about ZFS, as he goes into great detail about it and its history.

great episode!

Thanks for this great information about ZFS. I was really not clear on how to implement it, but it doesn't seem so scary now that you have explained the options. Thank you!

Great first-podcast-ever, by the way!
