Native ZFS on Linux
RHEL / CentOS / Scientific Linux Packages

DKMS style packages for RHEL, CentOS, and Scientific Linux are available from the zfsonlinux.org repository. These packages track the latest official upstream tag and are refreshed as new releases are made available. Packages are provided for:

  • Releases: 6, 7
  • Arches: x86_64

To add the repository to your system install the zfs-release package as shown below. This will add the /etc/yum.repo.d/zfs.repo and required signing keys to your system. Additionally, if your system does not already have the EPEL repository installed you will need to add it. Once both repositories are installed you can install zfs like any other package using yum. As new updated packages are made available they will be detected and installed as part of the standard update process.
