After using ZFS on Solaris, I missed the ZFS features on Linux and with no chance of ZFS coming to Linux, I had to do with MD and LVM. Or at least until BtrFS became mature enough and since the Linux 3.0 that time slowly has come. With Linux 3.0 BtrFS supports auto defragmentation and scrubbing of volumes. The second is maybe the most important feature of both ZFS and BtrFS as it can be used to actively scan data on disk for errors.
