Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris One of the advantages of ZFS is that it doesn't need a fsck. Replication, self-healing and scrubbing are a much better alternative. After a few years of ZFS life, can we say it was the correct decision? The reports in the mailing list are a good indicator of what happens in the real world, and it appears that once again, reality beats theory. The author of the article analyzes the implications of not having a fsck tool and tries to explain why he thinks Sun will add one at some point.

It won't fail that easily. i have a home server based on zfs and even frequent power losses don't render data useless proven by 2 years of 24/7 always online usage. Before i had ufs based setup and every 6-8 power loss rendered data so useless that even fsck couldn't fix the problem. ZFS is as solid as rock.
