Default Opensolaris file system. Linking multiple usb sticks.

Around three or four years ago I was at a free software convention, and Opensolaris was represented. They showed a video of a couple of guys in lab coats doing something cool:

First, they taped two usb hubs together (with 4 usb sockets each), and plugged them in to a computer. Next, they took 8 thumb drives and plugged them into the hubs. Then, they used some feature of Opensolaris that let them treat the sticks as one big drive. Then they transferred a big file, which was larger than any one usb stick, onto the "drive." Then they disconnected the usb sticks, put them on a table, mixed them up, and then plugged them back in to the hubs. Finally, they showed that the "drive" was still recognized and the file that they had saved on it was still intact.

I have been looking for this video and cannot find it. If anyone knows a direct link to this video, I would very much appreciate it.

Alternatively, if anyone knows how to do what I described: what is the name of that feature? I.e. what Opensolaris command/software was used to do it?
