WikiPedia: ZFS became a standard feature of Solaris 10 in June 2006.
btrfs: August 2014, the file system's on-disk format has been marked as stable.

web-research beat forums, in speed & volume. Other points of comparison vary.

But LQ MCA: xfs:20 zfs:21 btrfs:27 ext4:190 (I think xfs is RH default)

Joke: didn't I read somewhere that zfs requires a phdPHsystemD?
Why not poorich old ext4? Ooops, forgot: welcome to lq!
