Submission + - Running ZFS Natively On Linux Not As Fast As Btrfs (

An anonymous reader writes: It's been known that ZFS is coming to Linux in the form of a native kernel module done by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories and KQ Infotech. The ZFS module is still in closed testing on KQ infotech's side (but LLNL's ZFS code is publicly available), and now Phoronix has tried out the ZFS file-system on Linux along with carrying out some tests. ZFS on Linux via this native module is much faster than using ZFS-FUSE, but the Solaris file-system in most areas is not nearly as fast as EXT4, Btrfs, and XFS.
