ZFS on Linux

The World’s Most Powerful File System – At Your Service

ZFS is one of the most advanced and feature-loaded file systems available today, and the latest release of ZFS on Linux offers a wealth of new features and performance improvements. From native encryption and easier device removal to pool checkpoints and TRIM support, ZFS on Linux is better than ever.

Benefits of ZFS on Linux with Aberdeen

ZFS is a combined file system and logical volume manager that benefits from being scalable, and includes extensive protection against data corruption, support for high storage capacities, and efficient data compression.

guaranteed data integrity

Data Integrity

Copy-on-write technology keeps data safe from system crashes, and ZFS automatically attempts to correct errors if data being read doesn’t verify the checksum created when it was written.

Unlimited scalability


The world’s first 128-bit file system offers 16 billion times the capacity of 32-bit or 64-bit systems.

reduce administrative overhead

Administrative Overhead

ZFS automates and consolidates complicated storage administration concepts, helping to cut administrative overhead by 80%.

RAID made easy

Made Easy

ZFS needs no extra hardware or software to handle RAID. The ZFS implementation RAID-Z overcomes the write hole error in RAID-5.

maximize HPC performance

HPC Performance

Enjoy huge performance gains as ZFS removes the usual constraints on the order of issuing I/Os and uses dynamic striping across all devices to maximize throughput.

pooled storage


Pooled storage means no more data fragmentation and no more partitions to manage, plus the combined I/O bandwidth of all devices is available to each file system.

Solution Kit Overview

The QuantaStor platform's strong focus on user experience makes the web management interface easily understood and effective for IT generalists and alike.

Stirling Z-436

Head Node

The head node issues file system commands, houses I/O controllers, and manages storage traffic. This server features a 36-drive head node and is a 4U storage device with dual expander backplanes.

Stirling Z-212j


JBODs enable expansion of the ZFS storage. Multiple JBODs can be connected to the head node(s) to scale up the storage solution. This server features a 2U 12-drive JBOD with dual expander backplane.

Stirling Z-424j


This 4U JBOD rackmount features 24 x 3.5" hot-swappable HDDs bays, dual expander backplane, support for SAS3/2 HDDs with 12Gb/s throughput, as well as 8 x Mini-SAS HD ports for internal/external cascading expander combination for high performance, high availability or high redundancy requirements. Other features include one IPMI port for remote system power on/off and system monitoring, and support for NTP time synchronization with RTC battery backup, making it ideal for performance and computing capacity.

Stirling Z-444j


A 4U JBOD rackmount that features: 44x (24 front + 20 rear) 3.5" hot-swap drive bays supporting SAS3/2 HDDs with 12Gbps throughput, SAS3 (12Gbps) backplanes with dual expanders for load balancing and redundancy, and redundant 1280W platinum level (1+1) power supplies with PMBus.

Stirling Z-490j


This 4U 90-drive JBOD with dual backplane includes features such as an extreme high-density and high-capacity dual-path storage enclosure, up to 90 top-loading SAS3 12Gb/s hot-swappable HDDs, hot-swappable expanders with redundant BMC for remote system power on/off and monitoring, hot-swappable, tool-less modular design for easy service and easy maintenance, and a data transfer rate up to 20+ GB/s. It has the benefit of hot-swappable tool-less modular design for easy service and easy maintenance.
