Zettabyte Filesystem (ZFS) Technology Seminar Report, Abstract

An introduction to Zettabyte Filesystem
Zettabyte Filesystem, as the name suggests, is a file system and also a logical volume manager. It was designed by Sun Microsystems in 2005. It is a modern file system which includes many features which make it different from others. It is 128 bit filesystem. This makes it larger than most filesystems which are 64 bits. Hence, ZFS can address more data than most file systems. Some of the important features include protection against data corruption and snapshots. It combines the features of a file system and logical volume manager. Logical volume manager does an important job of allocating space in mass storage devices which is more effective than the trivial partitioning method.

Since ZFS combines these two things, it is very efficient and useful. ZFS prevents data corruption by the means of checksum or a hash. Each block of data stored in the device is checksummed. This process of checksumming continues all the way to the root node. Thus, data integrity is maintained. ZFS has a scrub tool which checks and fixes silent corruption. Along with all these features, ZFS also provides data encryption. ZFS is a very popular file system as it is available on many platforms like Solaris, OSX, Linux and many more.
