    scottf007 got a reaction from clostro in ZFS or normal Raid   
    Hi All, 

    I am on my Helios64 (already have a Helios4). 

    I am running 2 x 8TB, 1x 256 M2, OMV5 debian etc.
     
    I have ZFS running (from the wiki instructions) in a basic mirror format, and if I add a few drives I think it would still be a mirror, however I have the following question. It seems far more complicated than MDADM, and potentially more unstable (not in terms of the underlying technology, but in terms of changing these kernals etc every week). 

    Do you think for an average home user that this is really worth it or will constantly need work? To change it would mean starting again, but I do not want to change the setup every month and would intend to keep it stable for media, and backing up some stuff for the next few years. Or if it is working it should be fine for the long term?
     
    Cheers
    Scott
