For FreeBSD, unless you are absolutely certain that it will run out of
the box on the hardware you select, or are willing and able to do the
programming it takes to make it run, you would be wise select hardware
from the more mainstream manufacturers:
I've had problems running FreeBSD on hardware made by manufacturers
not memtioned above. Obviously, things change and your mileage may
As a data point: I'm running a diskless firewall on a VIA EK (Mini-ITX) board, and a file server on another EK board. I also tested with no problems on an ML board. All FreeBSD 6.2.
But no ZFS.
ZFS - for now - is for the datacenter.
Unless you go for an array of SSD disks - but you still need the memory.
If you want to play with ZFS, the best bet would probably to run it inside VMware and give it a bunch of 2 or 4 GB virtual disks.
Or like in that video somewhere on youtube, buy a couple of USB hubs and use USB sticks as disks ;-)
