"A term you should be familiar with is a zpool. A zpool is
similar to a logical volume group. ZFS volumes can have multiple
zpools in them, as I will demonstrate. Some advantages of ZFS are
built in compression and deduplication, as well as being easy to
manipulate, create and destroy pools. OpenSolaris (and by proxy,
Nexenta) has already integrated file-serving protocols such as NFS
and Samba with the ZFS filesystem, so we won't need to install a
Samba service. I have culled information about the zfs and zpool
commands from various sources. All sources used for the creation of
this article are linked at the end."
