Yes, can we please get an update on the next update to FlexRAID?  I'd love to see my bug (http://bug.flexraid.com/view.php?id=265) finally get fixed.

A lot of the new things that will come to RAID-F are being tested on Transparent RAID.
So, the update to RAID-F will take a while.

There is no ETA as we are looking at a major redesign of RAID-F.

Storage management in RAID-F can sometimes get annoying. For example, say the reserve is set to 50GB and a drive A has 60GB left. If I want to copy a file that's 30GB, it will go into drive A, essentially blowing past the reserve space. If I want to move a file larger than 60GB to the pool, it will still start to go into drive A. When the drive runs out of space, the copy stops and gives an error. Has this been addressed with the updated data management?

No.
A man of few words, ain't you?  ???

The full NZFS stack will be geared to the enterprise market.
It will be of interest to enthusiasts (as always), but this will NOT be a home user product.
This also implies that it will not be affordable to the typical home user. There might be a restricted community edition mostly to satisfy storage enthusiasts, but we are way too premature in this talk.

Transparent RAID is not simply a stop gap product to NZFS. It is strategically positioned for a certain market and price point.

Thank you. I thought NZFS was an underlying filesystem. Traid does everything I need it to do (absent performance of course), so I am quite happy with it thus far.

So, after the avalanche of an update that tRAID has been, we now get to talk about the incremental updates.

The core tRAID engine now has a performance mode profile option.

The storage pooling engine in tRAID is getting massive update including:
- Improved support for Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 Server R2
- Improved caching
- Native NFS support
- Additional NTFS feature support including being able to define file valid data
