    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Hi guys, zfs should be faster as the amount of available ram increases. In my VM I have 8 core (4770k) and 10GB of ram available, I've created a stripe of two virtual disks 50GB each. If I try to read/write files on my smb share I can't get more than 40MB/s, and I've noticed that the used...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    At this point, maybe, the best solution is to stick with OpenIndiana/OmniOS + napp-it. I'll manage torrent with Transmission even though I've figured out that it isn't as fast as uTorrent.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    The fact is that I feel much more comfortable with Linux OSes (especially with Debian/Debian based distros) than with Unix based ones. However I would use it for home purposes to download and share downloaded data across the home network. How about performance? Does it perform the same as the...

    What do you guys think about ZFS on Linux ? Is it as fast and reliable as ZFS on OI, Omnios etc ? Are all the ports at the same lavel (FreeBSD/Linux/MAC) ?

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I think that mirror and stripe would be faster than raidz2, and would be even easier to handle for the cpu.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I've thought that I can virtualize W7 x86/Lubuntu (minimum amount of needed hw resources) and make it save the downloaded (utorrent) files on the ZFS pool. In that way I have a rather fast storage and the download software. I have only to find the disk to install the OS onto... at the moment I...

    I have successfully installed napp-it :D Now, how can I share my Zpool with windows pcs ? Do you suggest CIFS or SMB ?

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Thank you _Gea I'll ready all the documentation. I have another question: is there a Bittorrent client for OI? Or maybe a plugin in nappit ? Thank you :)

    Help me choosing the right OS

    Hi Chandler, I will try OmniOS, I've downloaded OpenIndiana too. At the moment I use the server to download files, then I copy them on my main system's 1TB HDD. If I find the best OS, maybe I'll use the server to store, download and share data...in that case I'll of course upgrade the disks.
