Hi Martin,

If you're using it for NFS then that can be a good feature, but I see a lot more folks complaining about lack of removal for log devices. 

We've been using ZFS on OpenSolaris for DB servers since 2006 and OpenSolaris bits are very stable. In most cases we've found ZFS under OSol to be more stable than Solaris. Normally this is due to the youth of ZFS and the speed with which bugs are being corrected...which end up in OSol while Solaris languishes under it's long release cycle.  I'll posit Joyent as an example here of the stability of OSol bits...they use the SXCE distro recently discontinued. 

v19 also includes a number of performance fixes for DB workloads.
