Now that we are growing strong as a community, I figured that it was time to update the introductory post.

WELCOME to the Linux Data Storage community my fellow Linux (and open source) aficionados!

We have built up this community to encourage both novice and experts alike, in the field of data storage and how it relates to open source technologies. While this community is geared primarily toward Linux, you are still invited to post related non-Linux open source topics.

If your interests are filesystems, data backup / recovery, portable & LAN based storage, there is a section for you....and plenty more. There is also a section for more advanced topics ranging from RAID, Logical Volume Management, etc.

Our only guidelines to posting topics and or comments are as follow:

* Please post topics under their appropriate category.
* No spamming allowed.
* Please be respectful of others when posting topics / comments.
* Racially offensive, abusive, obscene, profane or otherwise socially unacceptable language, literal or implied, and pejorative name-calling (expressed or implied) are prohibited at all times.

Doesn't seem to work if you tried it previously and the 15 day free trial ended.

This is good news, though I already started to use it for stretch a couple of days ago without knowing that it just been released.
Been using zfs from zfsonlinux for a couple of years already, all good. Have never tried dedup, but the compression is one of the killer-features and doesn't require a lot of RAM. ZFS is just great, once you start using it, you probably will never look back on traditional fs :).

The Linux 4.6 kernel was officially released by Linus Torvalds on May 15, after seven release candidates. The Linux 4.6 kernel follows the Linux 4.5 kernel by 8 weeks and is the third new major milestone Linux kernel released so far in 2016.
Among the big new features in Linux 4.6 is full support for the USB 3.1 protocol, which offers the promise of up to 10 Gbps for USB link speeds. In contrast USB 3 provides 5 Gbps, while USB 2.0 topped out at 480 mbps.
cgroup namespace support could be a game-changer for containers

When we say the first lifetime cloud storage we are not only referring to this once in a lifetime pricing, but also because our storage solution really means ‘lifetime’ storage. This means you can upload your files and then remove them from your hard drives so that you can free up valuable space or you can rest assured that the data on your old external drives will be safe for the lifetime. You can sleep easy because your files are locked away on...
