The DragonFly BSD project, which is famous for its HAMMER file system and performance, will soon be able to handle vast amounts of swap space. Swap space is an area of the disk where data is placed when it is not currently needed in memory, freeing up the computer's RAM. According to the DragonFly BSD Digest website, the operating system may soon be capable of handling 32TB of swap space. "Matthew Dillon has made some changes to DragonFly’s swap handling, and his explanation notes that the theoretical max swap space is now 32 terabytes. He even had to change field sizes to accommodate the new, bigger numbers."
