comment Optimised ZFS in low RAM environment feasibility?
"Stable" is something I might not rush to call it; one is hesitant to call ANY even kinda-sorta newish filesystem "stable." But it's getting there. LWN (Linux Weekly News) just did a series on it; it's good -- check it out here: lwn.net/Articles/576276

I am not a ZFS guru, but I know a fair bit about filesystems in general, and I know one place you'll have to look out -- big time -- for memory consumption is data deduplication. You don't specify how big your disks are, nor how much data will reside on them; this is huge, as ZFS needs to keep an in-memory lookup table. I can't speak to other concerns, but I'd definitely kill deduplication. Also, btrfs is fairly mature for backed-up data, now; have you considered it? Check arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1226135 for some insights (which some will no doubt disagree with).

comment NFS: failed to create MNT RPC client status = -101
Sorry for the delay; you should have process "portmapper" installed -- "apt-get install portmapper" or "yum install portmapper", though generally, it gets installed with the NFS server. You also want to make sure it's running: /etc/init.d/portmapper start .
