The recently announced Oracle Solaris 10, 09/10 release introduced a number of significant upgrades to the ZFS file system.

So let's look at some of the key ZFS improvements that came in this update and figure out why they're so useful.

In this article, you'll learn more about LUN Expansion, Snapshot Holds, Triple Parity RAID-Z, Log Device Improvements, Pool Recovery, Splitting Mirrors and we'll discover a new scheduler class!

And as a bonus, we'll get to watch some videos that explain these features in further detail.
