The illumos Home Data Center

Dan McDonald on illumos Day.

Many of the features in Illumos are already being exploited in the Enterprise and Cloud settings. Features like ZFS (for flexible, robust storage), Zones (for both lightweight hosts and even full Virtual Machine containment), and Crossbow (network traffic shaping and bandwidth management) can easily be spotted in the wild today.

A combination of all of the above features can be exploited in a home or small-business setting to great effect on a single physical machine. This talk will present a home and a small-business deployment of Illumos which eliminates multiple boxes, and uses rock-solid illumos technology.
