    We are considering a ZFS Storage Server for our VMware VSphere 6.7 Environment. Dell's SAN solutions do not appear to be price competitive. I'm open to other enterprise supported solutions. ZFS provides minimal vender lock-in and gives us a lower cost to expand by adding 24 drive or 60 drive...

    I'm currently using OmniOS 15022 (old) with Napp-it pro but would really like a storage system with SMB3 multichannel support. I really like how simply OmniOS/Napp-it integrate with my domain and allow the use of compmgmt.msc to control permissions and would like to continue using this. I'm...

    Finding my ZFS bottleneck

    Sequential read speeds on my ZFS pool (4 vdevs, each a 2 x 6TB mirror) are not where I'd like them to be, at 80 - 130MB/S when moving large files around. My two main use cases for the pool are hosting VMs and moving large video files around. The VMs are performing fine but I'd like faster video...
