A working driver is under heavy test so I expect it will come to latest
stable and LTS version very soon.

"The reasons for a Solaris based ZFS System
- 100% focus on ZFS that was developed for Solaris 10 years ago and is most stable and complete there
- a complete storage OS from one hand, not the toolbox with a core OS and many options and vendors
- stable support for mirrorred ZFS boot systems with boot environments (restore a former bootable OS state)
- WWN enumeration of disks (disk unique identification) to keeps disk id identical over controller, server or OS
- fault management with active hot-spares that replaces faulted disks automatically
- SMB, NFS and iSCSI integrated in the core OS and maintained by Oracle or Illumos (OmniOS)
- virtual networking with virtual switches and virtual nics with vlan support
- service management SMF with service auto restart
- Solaris CIFS server with NFS4 ACL (more Windows NTFS alike than Posix ACL) and AD support,
 Windows SID as extended ZFS attribute (Permissions stay intact after a restore to another AD server),
- ZFS snaps as Windows „previous version“, stable and just working out of the box since years"
(http://www.napp-it.org/doc/downloads/napp-it.pdf)

The fastest, most stable, most scalable, and mature iSCSI implementation which is also maintained in Core OS. Complete cli available so no fiddling around with config files. (my add-on :-)
