Oracle Solaris ZFS is a dramatic advancement in simplified data administration with a
welcome integration of file system and volume management capabilities and an
innovative approach to data integrity.

Oracle Solaris ZFS uses a pool storage model where storage devices are aggregated
into a storage pool. File systems within the storage pool use all the storage in the pool.
Physical storage devices can be added to storage pools dynamically without interrupting
services, providing new levels of flexibility, availability, and performance.

ZFS has no practical limits on the number of files, directories, and file systems, or the
amount of physical storage that can be addressed.

• Scale up file system performance by putting application data on faster SSDs
• Provide a greener and faster solution with 3X less power, cooling, and maintenance
