Mac OS X "A commercial ZFS solution is (still) coming to Mac OS X, thanks to former Apple filesystem and OS engineer Don Brady (who previously worked on the abandoned internal Apple project to port ZFS). Brady and his company, Ten's Complement, just launched a limited private beta in hopes to have the software polished and ready for a summer launch this year. Ars spoke with Brady, who has a long history engineering filesystems for Mac OS and Mac OS X, to find out a little about his previous work with ZFS at Apple, and what Mac users can expect to gain from Ten's Complement's port of ZFS."

Notebooks make up the largest part of Apple's Mac business (according to Apple's quarterly reports), and why would you need multivolume management for a notebook?

As for the iOS devices, Apple would do best to introduce a new, lightweight filesystem that is designed for NAND memory. These devices certainly cannot handle the overhead of ZFS
