+ - Software patents over ZFS: collateral damages

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Coraid has notified that they will stop the distribution of their Z-NAS header due to a letter sent by NetApp. The Z-NAS devices were announced on May and would be a great competitor for high end storage solutions, like NetApp's devices. As the Z-NAS is based on Nexenta's storage platform and ZFS.

It seems that NetApp is trying to forbid anyone to use ZFS in a way that could hurt its huge benefits. Sun was the first dartboard for NetApp, and every single company that can become significant competition will suffer the same practices.

Came on guys at NetApp... don't fear competition. Just innovate more. Spend more on R&D and less on lawers!"
