Color me skeptical. I don’t think there has been an actual resolution of the core issues, just an agreement to abstain from legal hostilities.
See this article for some information.
ZFS will continue as a patent encumbered software stack, and since no resolution exists between Oracle and Netapp, Netapp could, potentially, press its claims against any other customer/user of ZFS.
This isn’t a good thing for anyone using or contemplating using ZFS, from any source other than Oracle. And I’ll bet Oracle is happy with that outcome.
