Compellent's launced the first network attached storage system to be based on the open-source Zettabyte File System

Compellent, a progressive-thinking data storage company that was an early mover to the idea of providing unified connectivity, on April 27 launched the first network-attached system based entirely on the open-source Zettabyte File System.

The 128-bit ZFS, which numerous storage network developers have described as extraordinarily fast, is an in-demand open-source software package for handling unstructured data in any type of block, file or drive as a virtualized single pool of storage.
