According to World of Mac the ZFS (Zettabyte File System) will be implemented in the upcoming Mac OS X release. This is pretty amazing news I think. According to Sun, who developed ZFS, the file system “is a fundamentally new approach to data management. We’ve blown away 20 years of obsolete assumptions, eliminated complexity at the source, and created a storage system that’s actually a pleasure to use.”
It has been suggested that the ZFS file system is being called Time Machine, which looks pretty good to me.
Yes, there is a touch of marketing speak there, from both Sun and Apple, but if it delivers on half of its promises, it will be a significant improvement on what we have today. Kudos Sun and Apple!
