would you mind sharing what you tune because I am in the process of using more and more FreeBSD in our company and we have a couple of VMWare virtualizations. 

I would love to use ZFS with beadm to be able to make working snapshots before modifying the system and use snapshots in general.

It would be great to be able to learn from someone who really use it and has experience
