Linux Employees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have ported Sun's/Oracle's ZFS natively to Linux. Linux already had a ZFS port in userspace via FUSE, since license incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL prevent ZFS from becoming part of the Linux kernel. This project solves the licensing issue by distributing ZFS as a separate kernel module users will have to download and build for themselves.

I didn't know both filesystems where (now) from the same owner. I'd actually suggest BSD though if they where looking to expand ZFS adoption. Hopefully the MBAs don't get a hold of it and lock it up as part of Solaris or a future Oracle enterprise product.
