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."

the overhead of ZFS.

The myth that ZFS has hug overhead is incorrect. ZFS is very configurable and can be configured to run on ARM platforms. Although never released their was some work to do this inside of Sun.

ARM is also being targeted for power-efficient servers, but an ARM server is a very different beast from a portable device (that uses NAND exclusively for storage) like the iPad
