OpenSolaris …(and Solaris 10) implements ZFS filesystem as of c 2005/2006… ZFS is a 128-bit file system... … to give you an idea of the capability limitations of a 128-bit file system (hint: there are none):
-If a billion computers each filled a billion individual file systems per second, the time required to reach the limit of the overall system would be almost 1,000 times the estimated age of the universe.
- Project leader Bonwick said, "Populating 128-bit file systems would exceed the quantum limits of earth-based storage. You couldn't fill a 128-bit storage pool without boiling the oceans." Later he clarified:
Although we'd all like
ZFS read/write libraries are available on Mac OS X Leopard (which ported ZFS to the Mac in 2007)… but it has to be installed by hand from the binaries. Sponsored by Google’s Summer of Code, there is work being done on a
