Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "When eWEEK Labs first reviewed Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 early last year, we were impressed by the new facilities the operating system offered for better serving up applications and making the most of the SPARC and x86 hardware on which it runs. With this summer's Solaris 10 update, labeled 6/06, Sun has significantly improved on its already excellent operating system with the addition of the much-heralded Zettabyte File System."

I've heard a lot of hype about ZFS, read the docs, watched the demos, etc. This is not intended as a flame, but I am an AIX consultant and I can't, for the life of me, figure out what ZFS brings to the table that you can't do with LVM+JFS2 on AIX. It is being pitched as a technological advancement light-years ahead of any other UNIX vendor and I just don't see it.

Can someone enlighten me as to why ZFS is so much better than anything else that's out there?
