ZFS - The Greatest Thing I Never Knew About

After hearing a lot of really good things about ZFS, I decided to give OpenSolaris and ZFS a try. After running into some issues with my install media, I decided it would be more fun to play with ZFS on FreeBSD. I began to dive in, but need to get myself some more SCSI drives.

At any rate, ZFS looks awesome. Better scalability, I/O, easy creation/manipulation of storage on the fly, redundancy, self healing, etc, than any RAID filesystem out there. This is very high level, but I plan on getting more indepth in the near future - time to buy some hardware!
