Canonical’s Dustin Kirkland writes today about one of the awesome things that will be implemented by default in the upcoming Linux-based distribution, ZFS, the robust file system that everyone talks about these days, which Canonical will bake directly into Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Best of all, Canonical promises to offer long-term support for the ZFS file system in the Xenial Xerus operating system, which will receive security patches and software updates for five years, until April 2021, and from the looks of it, ZFS will be the default file system for containers in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
“Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial) is only a few short weeks away, and with it comes one of the most exciting new features Linux has seen in a very long time. ZFS — baked directly into Ubuntu — supported by Canonical,” said Dustin Kirkland, Ubuntu Product and Strategy at Canonical.
