It is an open-source software which is licensed under the joint development and distribution license. UFS is the Unix file system. It is used entirely with UNIX and all UNIX operating systems and is labeled as the Berkeley fast file system and is a disconnected offspring of the first file system used in version 7 UNIX.

ZFS is made up of numerous features and elements. It is constructed of virtual tools that are made of block devices- files, hard drive partitions, or drives. A ZFS capacity is rather large in comparison to standard file systems.
