Yet another ZFS benchmark
Yet another benchmark of ZFS: This time at Robert´s blog.The benchmark was done with the focus of comparing hardware and software raid configurations. He sees the replacement of failed disk with ZFS as an little weakness, but this is stuff engineers already work on. But at the end, the he comes to the conclusion:
As it looks like in many workloads HW RAID will in real life give you less performance for higher price... but you get all the other features, right? Well, you get clones, snapshots... but you get them buit-in with ZFS and for most workloads ZFS clones and snapshots not only will give much better performance but won't need dedicated disks. Then management is much more easier with ZFS than with arrays - especially when you think about different software to manage arrays from different vendors. With ZFS it's all the same - just give it disks...
