EON ZFS Storage release changes

It's been a while since the previous EON Storage release. I know, I know, please forgive but as promised I have not forgotten or stopped. This release, 151a9-041815 will be the final OpenIndiana based release. Future EON Storage releases will be based on OmniOS. Their road-map simply seems like the best path forward.

When you write future versions of EON will be based on OmniOS, when what exactly is EON? It should like complete Solaris fork, but so is OmniOS.

Is EON only the kernel?

Andre Lue said...

EON is a minimal RAM/live ZFS NAS OS. It is currently built from OpenIndiana kernel and binaries, but going forward will be built from OmniOS. Hope that helps, more info can be found here:

Hi Andre, I couldn't find the downloads for the new version of EON. Are they available?.

I am insterested to know about the future build based on OmniOS, I at least the on memory feature more in line with SmartOS, but you know better than anybody about which base distrib is better suited.

I leave a topic in google groups Eon future Base development.

Thanks for your work and welcome back!

Hi Andre,

Same question / point here:
Glad to see you're doing ok, and that EON is still alive and kicking. But where are the downloads or path to upgrade?

Do you also have a commercial version available?

Thanks a lot for your ongoing work!

Hi Andre,

Same question here too. :-)
Looking for the downloads... especially the 32 bit ones.

Thanks again for keeping this project going.

Cheers,
John
