Piotr is back with an intriguing video about a 100TB storage server!  This system was only $110/month on auction.

Once you’ve got 100TB worth of drives, the question is how do you organize them?  Should you use EXT4 with RAID or venture into ZFS?

What if I told you that Piotr’s benchmark shows that ZFS performs 90 times better than EXT4 and RAID?

Amazing.  Check this out!
