You should avoid using mdadm as device for ZFS. ZFS can do much better than mdraid.

 
However you can use partitions as a basis for ZFS and form a RAID volume on the partitions.

But it is not free as in free beer.

 
 
one more question. as i am trying to study ZFS from googling and youtubing. i have a question like we mdadm in linux can we create RAID partitions for ZFS? for example.if i am using RAIDz1 with 3x500GB HD . means it is giving me (1TB). so for example after few years may be 2 years on out of 3 drives fail and 500 drive is no longer available in market and at that time minimum size i can by is 1TB. so my question can i plug large size drive as RAID with small drives one?

Thanks,

Myk
