It's still rubbish.

I would recommend you consider one of the following:-

1. ZFS on OpenSolaris  - http://www.oracle.com/us/products/servers-storage/solaris/solaris-11-express-185123.html

2. ZFS on Openindiana - http://openindiana.org/

3. ZFS on Nexenta Community Edition - http://www.nexenta.com/corp/blog/2010/03/26/nexentastor-community-edition-is-launched-12tb-free-with-deduplication/

and then make a decision whether you want to use iSCSI or NFS.


Or the other Alternatives that exist, NFS or iSCCSI on Windows

If you have good Windows Skills, try these, these are good for Production and Lab! They are not rubbish, perform well, not based on Beta versions, stable and highly recommended, and if you have good Windows skills, what are you waiting for step by step guides with Video!
