In this case, there are no overhead or filesystem corruption risk, due to that, the CT uses ZFS "directly". Of course, on application level, for example mysql inconsistent situation can happen on crash or snapshot (anyway, I did never experience this).

Not the best source to get a good point: https://openvz.org/Ploop/Why#Before_ploop

IOW: There was a great discussion a few days earlier on the ovz-list, if simfs should be droped or
not - developers would like dropping it ;)


PS: Just a hint. Your posting has a good point ...

PPS: .. even if I think you should better/more clearly compare your setup with latest pve, as some
things are already in there.
