LinuxWorld said that Sun's ZFS filesystem from OpenSolaris has been ported into a server or daemon program that runs on Linux.

ZFS, like the rest of OpenSolaris, is only available under Sun's Common Development and Distribution License for about two years, which means it cannot be part of Linux, which is under version two of the GNU.
