Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

In ZFS it is extremely easy and quick to a new filesystem. Filesystems are extremely light weight, like an ordinary directory.
# zfs create myZPOOL/thisIsAFilesystem
which takes less than one second.

In other words, it is no problem that "only" filesystems are encrypted. You should only store data in filesystems anyway.
