Competitive Benchmarking of ZFS

Peerapong Kunasirirat points to some really interesting benchmark documents regarding the comparision between ZFS and ext3/NTFS/vxfs. I find one paragraph out from the ext3/ZFS comparision quite informative:

For the conditions tested, Solaris ZFS can outperform the Red Hat Enterprise Linux ext3 file system for many workloads, especially Postmark and relational database indexed queries. In other cases, Solaris ZFS exhibits comparable performance but does not require the performance or data integrity trade-offs that are inherent in the ext3 file systems when running in ordered and writeback modes.
