ZFS on a NetApp powered VMWare cluster

There kinda is no profit in using ZFS this way. It's good when you use 
local disks and give those disks fully to ZFS, this way you really don't 
have any performance impact except considerable amount of RAM going to 
ZFS needs. But other then that, no, FreeBSD from, say, 9.0-RELEASE works 
perfectly with ZFS. If you keep NAS on ZFS shared by ZFS - that also is 
a good idea, but if you use ZFS on virtual disks of VMWare then I'd say 
that's a waste.
