Will DragonFly BSD be working to port or otherwise incorporate a
high-performance file system? This would be imperative in a
high-availability clustering solution. I doubt, however, that Veritas
will port VxFS to FreeBSD; I think the Linux port alone was to ride out
the market wave. I could be wrong.
FWIW, I once had ported some of the Linux VxFS code. It's
pretty easy actually. If there is demand for VxFS, then I
do not mind doing it when I have some free time.
