OpenSolaris Community: Storage

In a recent blog entry, Jonathan Schwartz said, "in our view, computers are storage devices, and vice versa". That comment was not just about ZFS. Look at the OpenSolaris Storage Community page on; Sun has an impressive storage platform which is almost all open sourced.

The OpenSolaris Storage Community describes is goals as:
  • Build an active community of administrators and developers to improve and extend the OpenSolaris storage environment.
  • Enable the development of OpenSolaris storage appliances.
  • Connect OpenSolaris source code activities with open standards efforts in the storage industry.
  • Support developers creating new OpenSolaris storage capabilities.
  • Support developers porting existing storage applications to OpenSolaris.
