    Hello Everybody,

    Like I mentioned in a previous thread I want to use ZFS for my personal storage.
    I found a cheap deal for a Hard drive storage which supports JBOD.
    My question, Does this JBOD storage have to support ZFS or not.
    technically it should not matter, I think.

    ZFS wants single disk access (no sort of a raid array as a device).
    Beside that a ZFS pool can be build on any device that can be treated as blockdevice like a disk, a file or a iSCSI LUN.
