Should I byte the bullet and build the NAS on FreeBSD taking advantage of ZFS, snapshots, replications, etc? Or is this an overkill?
I built my "NAS" with FreeBSD due to the self healing properties of ZFS with checksums and redundant data, and due to the fact that ZFS became more or less a standard that run in many OS and will not be forgotten from one day to other. But I am unhappy with ZFS, it is too heavy and complicated for my purpose, do not pass to the unix environement, and my use is for less than NAS, "only" for archival purposes. But I do not see at the moment a simple alternative that fulfill my expectations. Rodrigo
