I want ZFS on my Mac. At work I am not sure it is that valuable as most of our disk comes from a SAN and already has the RAID stuff done before the box touches it.

"To ZFS there are two types of datasets: filesystem datasets and volume datasets. Filesystem datasets store file data in the traditional manner, while volume datasets are block allocations which can be used to store non-ZFS filesystems (UFS, VxFS, etc), raw data allocations (used by apps like Oracle), or offered up via technologies like iSCSI."
