Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems makes new releases of Solaris about every four to six months, in many cases all the new release contains is bug fixes and some changes in functionality. More often than not most releases go by without a great deal of fanfare. Just as Solaris 10 3/05 broke new ground with Zones, Dtrace and the Service Management Facility. Solaris 10 6/06 introduces ZFS or Zettabyte File System and the SATA framework and Xorg 6.9, which will be the primary focus of this review.

I think ZFS offers completely end-to-end integrated seamless tools, while LVM+whateverFS requires that you manage by hand many things, using tons of pvcreate, vgcreate, lvcreate, mkfs, etc. instead of just 2 commands in ZFS.
BTW LVM can't do RAID-4 or RAID-5, and overall LVM performance sucks(especially snapshots slow down the disk performance enormously).
