It works, and there's never been doubt that it would work. The main
resource you need is memory. At least 1 GB is recommended, but it should
work with 512 MB (though people were reporting panics unless they scale
ZFS and VFS parameters down). If you're thinking of using it in
production, you should read the threads on this list regarding ZFS,
especially those mentioning panics.
