    I like the ZFS theroy, However I would have to question  ZFS Pool 
Version Number 28 stability,
    that is what freebsd 9.0 comes with. because it was never really 
used/marked as production ready by sun/oracle.
    in my opionion version 28 is consider as a development version. 
solaris 11 uses version 33 so that is consider
    as production ready but it is closed source. i think the last open 
zfs version pool marked as production ready,was pool
    version 14 and 15
    zfs sounds great however i would actally trust more UFS2 for 24x7 

   agian this is my opinion, could be wrong:-)
