ZFS is a file system focused on storage and redundancy. It's designed with file servers in mind, where high availability and data integrity are absolutely paramount. That's one reason it's interesting, but very exciting, to see it natively available on a desktop operating system like Ubuntu. Note that ZFS on Ubuntu is a new feature and therefore still flagged as "experimental."

The newest iteration of Ubuntu, Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa, offers a new option during installation that hasn't been present in previous LTS releases. We now have the ability to format drives with the Z File System (ZFS) inside the Ubuntu installation process. Ubuntu itself still uses the ext4 file system, but the rest of your partitions or hard drives can be formatted with ZFS.

In this tutorial, we'll guide you through installing Ubuntu 20.04 with ZFS as our file system on a few drives. If you already have Ubuntu installed and aren't yet using ZFS, there's no need to do a fresh install. We'll show you how to install ZFS on an already established Ubuntu 20.04 install as well.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to install Ubuntu 20.04 with ZFS (fresh install)
  • How to install ZFS on Ubuntu 20.04
