I'm looking into ZFS and using FreeNAS for ZFS management and have the following question:
Do the ZFS advantages as deduplication, auto error fixing etc still work when creating an iSCSI target on a ZFS volume?
In FreeNAS, this is probably a raw image file which in used as a target on a ZFS volume. Since it's block based (rather than file based): do ZFS the advantages still apply?
Edit: Intended use will be storage for VMware (ESXi).
