OpenZFS launch announcement, September 17th, 2013:

Today we announce OpenZFS: the truly open source successor to the ZFS project.

ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in active development for over a decade. Recent development has continued in the open, and OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open community of developers, users, and companies improving, using, and building on ZFS. Founded by members of the Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and illumos communities, including Matt Ahrens, one of the two original authors of ZFS, the OpenZFS community brings together over a hundred software developers from these platforms.

You can read more about OpenZFS at our website: http://open-zfs.org (don't forget the dash!)

The OpenZFS community's goals are:

  1. To raise awareness of the quality, utility, and availability of OpenZFS by consolidating documentation for developers and sysadmins alike, and by engaging with the larger tech community through conferences, meetups, and online interactions.
  2. To encourage open communication about ongoing efforts to improve open source OpenZFS, by creating a collaborative website and a mailing list to discuss OpenZFS code changes.
  3. To ensure consistent reliability, functionality, and performance of all distributions of OpenZFS by making it easier to share code between platforms, by creating cross-platform tests, and by encouraging cross-platform code reviews.

More than a dozen people have helped define the OpenZFS goals and create the open-zfs.org website, and there are many ways to participate in OpenZFS:

  • Use OpenZFS! OpenZFS is available for several operating system distributions, including FreeBSD, OmniOS (illumos), Debian, Gentoo, PC-BSD, and Mac OS X.
  • If you are making a product based on OpenZFS, you are in good company. More than a dozen companies are talking about how OpenZFS helps make their products great. Contact admin at open-zfs.org to get your logo on the open-zfs.org companies list and our T-shirts.
  • Write code for OpenZFS and contribute it to your platform's repo. Join the developer@open-zfs.org mailing list to stay informed about OpenZFS projects, and get design help or feedback on your code changes.
  • Contribute to the growing body of documentation on the open-zfs.org website. Share your experiences with OpenZFS by blogging, tweeting (#OpenZFS), and speaking at conferences and user groups.

OpenZFS is the most advanced filesystem in the world. Join the community and be a part of making it even better.
