The inventors of Sun Microsystems’ ZFS, Jeff Bonwick, distinguished engineer and storage CTO, and Bill Moore, hardware/software architect, tell me what was behind coming up with ZFS. It’s a file system. That sounds boring, right? But it’s not, since this technology is used in many of the world’s datacenters to keep files safely stored even when bad things happen. The conversation takes us all over the place, since these guys are experts on storage systems. Hard drives and all that. What does ZFS stand for? Zettabyte File System.
