Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: * ZFS is an Enterprise level file system that many poeple trust
with large amounts of data (>100TB) * ZFS is much easier to use than the
combination of linux RAID, LVM and EXT4 * ZFS supports checksumming which
prevents bit rot. * ZFS supports compression and deduplication * strong support
for ZFS will drive new users to openSUSE * Hardware RAID Controllers are adding
a layer between OS and hard drives that can be hard to monitor with linux
tools. * BTRFS is not yet ready today (it does not support RAID5 and is lacking
many other features) * Ubuntu server will have it.

Why would you not want ZFS?
