Looking to get some larger drives for one of my boxes. It runs
exclusively ZFS and has been using Seagate 2TB units up until now (which
are 512 byte sector).
Anyone offer up suggestions of either 3 or preferably 4TB drives that
actually work well with ZFS out of the box? (And not perform like
I'm using Oracle Solaris 11 , and would prefer not to have to use a
hacked up zpool to create something with ashift=12.
Thoughts on the best drives - or is Solaris 11 actually ready to go with
whatever I throw at it? :)
And - am I doomed to have to use these so called 'advanced format'
drives (which as far as I can tell are in no way actually advanced, and
only benefit HDD makers and not the end user).
