All I know is this:
After running ZFS for the Cyrus mailstores for a year now I'd never go back.

run OS-Y and filesystem J I'd say find another boy to run it or double
For trustworthy mail-storage there isn't anything comparable and you
nervous people get about mail outages. I haven't had to look at an fsck
in over a year, and that is sufficient reason for me. Being able to run
