Abstract: 

Joy's Law, named after Sun Microsystems' founder, is proving painfully true: “The best people work for someone else” and the explosive growth of open source now dictates that you are always out numbered by skilled developers you could never obtain or afford. This is not however a bad thing. Collaboration always beats competition when building community infrastructure and the OpenZFS project is taking Sun's next generation file system to unforeseen and unimaginable levels. OpenZFS-powered projects like FreeNAS have inverted the conversation from "I wish I could have this enterprise technology at home" to "Why aren't we using this at work?"
