The BeaST storage is one year old

A year has passed since I got early results with the BeaST storage system concept. The first public announce was made on 2016.04.22 and the full paper was published a week after.

Thanks to the BSD Magazine for republishing all my papers and for the BSD Now for discussing the BeaST online.

Now I have several news on the project.

First, I have updated its project page to be more clean and informative.

Second, I have posted a new Approaching online zpool switching between two FreeBSD machines article. It shows a simple solution for online or, truly saying, almost online safe Fail-over and Fail-back of ZFS pool between two storage controllers.

Third, I have updated the most important paper about the BeaST storage concept. See The BeaST Classic – dual-controller storage system with RAID arrays and fail-over Arbitrator mechanism for details.
