I'm seriously thinking about converting the Linux system in question
into a FreeBSD system so that I can use ZFS.
FreeBSD is a wonderfully stable, coherent, and well-documented system
which has stood the test of time and has an excellent development
team. Zfs 28 is fairly new to FreeBSD but there is every reason to
believe that it will be close to "production" grade when FreeBSD 9.0
The main shortcoming of zfs in FreeBSD is that kernel memory
allocation is not yet coherent/shared as it is in Solaris. If you
install enough memory, then this becomes a non-issue.
If you are planning to build an NFS server, then it is good to know
that Solaris does NFS better than Linux or FreeBSD.
