Simon Breden wrote to me the other day, pointing to a nice set of articles he’d written about how he setup a home file server using ZFS. It’s a good write up on everything from choosing the hardware to thinking about disk layout and exploring some of the ZFS commands needed to create the server.

This is another case study that shows that ZFS isn’t just for enterprises, it can be used quite nicely at home as well – well worth a read and a good introduction to ZFS if you’re just getting started.
