An Introduction to the Implementation of ZFS

Much has been documented about how to use ZFS, but little has been written about how it is implemented.

This talk pulls back the covers to describe the design and implementation of ZFS. The content of this talk was developed by scouring through blog posts, tracking down unpublished papers, hours of reading through the quarter-million lines of code that implement ZFS, and endless email with the ZFS developers themselves. The result is a concise description of an elegant and powerful system.
