opensolaris / zfs – whitebox build

I’ve built a little server for home use, but it pales in comparison to this beast… This type of setup would be perfect for a lab / test environment that requires lots of fast and reliable disk.

Check out this build (very nice clear guide)   http://www.stringliterals.com/?p=77
