So, I really like ZFS, and I've been exploring my options;  Nexenta 
does seem very expensive for what I'm looking for (software to run 
on my own hardware that I support myself.  Obviously, if they provide
and maintain the hardware, that's rather a different value proposition,
but I'm far too cheap to pay for quality support.)  

Is anyone using the NexentaOS or other free software on large
(50tb+) arrays?    I've heard of a few people using freebsd, but 
not at the scale (and utilization) I plan to have.
