FreeNAS is proud to announce our support and involvement with the OpenZFS Initiative. OpenZFS is the spiritual open source successor to the ZFS project. This formalized coalition of developers, users, and companies dedicated to the open use and improvement of ZFS will allow everyone to stay on the same page so there is no fragmentation.
The OpenZFS community was founded by members from the FreeBSD, Linux, illumos, and Mac OS X communities and includes one of the original authors of ZFS, Matt Ahrens.
The community aims to raise awareness of OpenZFS, encourage open communication on what improvements should be made, and ensure the performance and reliability of OpenZFS across platforms.
