LXer: ZFS on Linux is "ready for wide scale deployment"

Published at LXer:

Developer Brian Behlendorf has announced the release of version 0.6.1 of the native ZFS on Linux port. After over two years in experimental status, the developers now say the file system "is ready for wide scale deployment on everything from desktops to super computers." The native ZFS on Linux is based on the Solaris Porting Layer (SPL) which emulates underlying features of Solaris in the Linux kernel.

ZFS as well as Btrfs have some very powerful tools. This is some pretty good news.

My thoughts were "Oh, so I'm too late to format my 'new' external drive ZFS. Oh, wait, it's BTRFS, erm?".
Does ZFS do anything "clever" or that enables the use of multiple disks other than a JBOD?
