Sure. Be prepared to rebuild and/or reinstall all your ports/packages and 
follow the other guidelines in src/UPDATING and other documentation.

That's 6-STABLE..

..and that's 8-CURRENT. You probably want tag=RELENG_7 (7.0-STABLE) or 
RELENG_7_0 (7.0-RELEASE + security fixes).

Since ZFS in FreeBSD is still experimental you should do a lot of testing 
and otherwise keep that in mind. For many loads and with the right tuning

useful response depends on your goals. Why do you think ZFS would be a good 
thing for this server?
