ZFS, absolutely. RAIDz2 appears to be the solution to my needs. I've lost enough data to bit rot that data integrity is important, but am on a budget so having 3 arrays with 8 disks isn't feasible. Have you used ZFS, LVM, mdadm (Linux software for RAID), what are your thoughts between the three? I've used LVM, mdadm, hardware RAID0/RAID10/RAID5, and LVM on top of RAID. As a hobbyist the latter seems cumbersome to administer across multiple servers, so a hybrid like ZFS seems promising.

I've only ever used ZFS. My previous NAS had two 2TB disks in a mirror. It took about 3 commands to set that up using zfs. Personally I'm a massive fan of ZFS.

One of the disks actually failed so that was a good test of removing a disk and resilvering.
