ZFS on a NetApp powered VMWare cluster

Hi list:

We have about eight freebsd workstations on vmware vsphere 6 cluster whose
storage is based on NFS provided by NetApp.

We have been using ZFS on our workstations because we wanted to take
advantage of the ZFS boot environment; however, recently we are told not to
do so because using ZFS would impose a huge performance impact on our
workstations. Is that true? Or is there any suggestions on tuning the ZFS
on those workstations?
