Thanks to everyone who came along to the talk, I was really impressed with the turnout. There was a lot to fit in, so I appreciate it was a fast paced session! I hope it gave you at least a taste of what I see are the benefits of ZFS.

I had a few questions after the talk about ZFS on Linux. To confirm, it's no longer just in userland, there is a kernel port available and you can find out more at: http://zfsonlinux.org/

To answer another question, it is also possible to use ZFS as your boot device in Linux: https://github.com/zfsonlinux/pkg-zfs/wiki

The best way to build yourself a dedicated ZFS storage box is to use: http://www.freenas.org/ as you get a GUI to help you. There's a new interface on the way that should look a lot better.

Have fun!

p.s. this site is forcing me to rate my own talk so I'm going for a nice neutral 3 :-)

Very interesting to see how far it has come. Going to take another look at it now.
