The ramblings of a former Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist

Dennis+Domino+OpenSolaris+ZFS = WOW!

Yesterday, I was chatting in #opensolaris with Dennis Clarke. He’d just gotten Lotus Domino running under ZFS on Solaris Express build 27a (which is built around the same code distributed for the current biweekly drop of OpenSolaris).

He was talking about how much better things were running under zfs.

I suggested that “just for laughs” he should try it with zfs compression turned on as this should drop the amount of I/O occurring and may produce some surprises.

Today he finished doing this. The results are nothing short of incredible.

Don’t take my word for it, have a look at what Dennis has written about it.
