“Using SSD as the Level Two Cache for the FreeBSD Dual-Controller Storage Array” in the fresh BSD Mag issue

“Nowadays storage systems use fast solid-state drives (SSD) not only for storing data volumes, but even as the second layer of cache. In ZFS this feature is implemented by L2ARC and it means that we can easily enable this feature on the BeaST storage system”.

This article is the last paper in the series related to the genesis of the BeaST storage system.bsdmagazine-1

Many thanks to Marta Ziemianowicz and all the BSD Mag team for the perfect job!
