@jaredbusch nfs on top of ZFS.
ZFS should be the underlying block/fs for everything whether a single hard drive, block storage like iSCSi, file storage such as NFS or CIFS. I like TrueNAS for this purpose. As you can see, I love ZFS. My problem is I also love CentOS. Need to figure out easy ways to get ZFS on CentOS. We should all write a letter to Larry asking him to open up the license.
Most of us here do not subscribe to The Cult of ZFS. Yes, it has a place, but not nearly like it's made out to be.
