Apple Considers Solaris ZFS Support in OS X?

Apple is reportedly considering plans to port Solaris ZFS to Mac OS X. An email message purported to come from Sun's Eric Kustarz claims: "Here's some exciting news! Chris Emura, the filesystem development manager within Apple's CoreOS organization is interested in porting Solaris ZFS to OS X."

Kustarz adds: "Speaking for the ZFS team (at Sun), this is great news and we fully support the effort." Unix-based, ZFS is an innovative new file system that's part of the Solaris 10 OS. Describing it, Sun distinguished engineer and chief architect of ZFS Jeff Bonwick says: "We've rethought everything and rearchitected it. We've thrown away 20 years of old technology that was based on assumptions no longer true today."
