ZFS Storage for Virtualization and Cloud [38033]
By Meghan Fritz

Meghan writes, "I had the good fortune over the weekend to read through a VMware Press book called Essential Virtual SAN: Administrator's Guide to VMware Virtual SAN by Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping. Very good book.

First, I'd like to observe that VSAN is a very interesting idea, but based on the content of this book, it's still in it's early days. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that things like VSAN just might be the barbarian at the gate for certain storage use cases, as they aim to get virtual machine storage to be highly integrated with the virtual machine infrastructure..."

We (since I'm one of them) should send expensive gifts to Oracle ACE Alexandre Borges. Alexandre loves Solaris so much he can't stop writing about it. He recently put together a torrent of articles about ZFS that, even if you think you know everything about it, you should peruse. Because I bet he's found things you didn't know about.

Oracle VM Storage Connect Plug-in for Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance [37302]
By Honglin Su

Honglin writes, "The Oracle VM Storage Connect framework provides a storage discovery and provisioning API that enables the provisioning and management of storage platforms directly from within Oracle VM Manager. The abstraction provided by the Storage Connect framework allows administrators to perform provisioning operations without the need to know the specific behavior of any storage platforms that are being used within the Oracle VM infrastructure. The Storage Connect API allows third party storage vendors to develop their own Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-ins that enable their storage appliances to interface with the Storage Connect framework..."
