With Solaris 11 you can use shadow migration, it is really a VFS layer feature but it is integrated into the ZFS CLI tools for easy of use

# zfs create -o shadow=file:///path/to/old  mypool/new

The new filesystem will appear to instantly have all the data, and it will be copied over as it is access as well as shadowd pulling it over in advance.

You can use shadowstat(1M) to show progress.
