ZFS? -> Zee File System? ... or the new FAT

Not a sexy subject but impressive numbers nonetheless. Leopard actually support ZFS but read only. Snow will support both read/write!

So, what? Look at the numbers:
  • 2^48: Number of possible images (system snapshots)
  • 2^48: Number of files in each file system (disk)
  • 16 hexa-bytes: Maximum size of file system (16 Hexa-Bytes disks? Anytime soon?)
  • 16 hexa-bytes: Maximum file size (Talk about bloated files!)
  • 2^56: Maximum theorical number of files per folder (2^48 because of above)
To help you get a human scale idea: One creating 1''' files per second 24/7 would take over 9' centuries to reach the limit!!! :shock:

Add over that better protection against file corruption, power failures and RAID problems.

Get ready for that 33 Gigapixels 12' fps camera...

Where did you get this information? This would be very nice if true...
Isn't you who asked for it when going more nuts? :roll:

The info is coming from a knoledgeable techno-journalist from Radio-Canada who is also a Mac enthousiast. I like very much his chronicles on saturday radio... He published this information in french HERE.
