Headlines FreeBSD 11.3-b1 is out BSDCan 2019 Recap We’re back from BSDCan and it was a packed week as always. It started with bhyvecon on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Benedict spent the whole day in productive meetings: annual FreeBSD Foundation board meeting and FreeBSD Journal editorial board meeting. On Wednesday, tutorials for BSDCan started as well as the FreeBSD Developer Summit. In the mornings, there were presentations in the big auditorium, while working groups about networking, failsafe bootcode, development web services, swap space management, and testing/CI were held. Friday had a similar format with an update from the FreeBSD core team and the “have, need, want” session for FreeBSD 13. In the afternoon, there were working groups about translation tools, package base, GSoC/Outreachy, or general hacking. Benedict held his Icinga tutorial in the afternoon with about 15 people attending. Devsummit presentation slides can be found on the wiki page and video recordings done by ScaleEngine are available on FreeBSD’s youtube channel. The conference program was a good mixture of sysadmin and tech talks across the major BSDs. Benedict saw the following talks: How ZFS snapshots really work by Matt Ahrens, 20 years in Jail by Michael W. Lucas, OpenZFS BOF session, the future of OpenZFS and FreeBSD, MQTT for system administrators by Jan-Piet Mens, and spent the rest of the time in between in the hallway track. Photos from the event are available on Ollivier Robert’s talegraph and Diane Bruce’s website for day 1, day 2, conference day 1, and conference day 2. Thanks to all the sponsors, supporters, organizers, speakers, and attendees for making this yet another great BSDCan. Next year’s BSDCan will be from June 2 - 6, 2020.

ZFS offers RAID options mirror, stripe, and its own parity distribution called RAIDZ that functions like RAID5 on hardware RAID. The file system is extremely flexible and secure, with various drive combinations, checksums, snapshots, and replication all possible. For a deeper dive on ZFS technology, read the ZFS Primer section of the FreeNAS documentation. ...
