Is ZFS ready for primetime?

Over the course of the past four months, I have encountered a couple of ZFS bugs that led to corrupt pools. One of the bugs hit this weekend, and resulted in us having to recover the pool from a snapshot on our storage array (this experience has made me truly appreciate the 3par’s snapshot capability). These bugs have led me to question whether or not ZFS is ready for prime time, and if companies should be deploying it in production. If you have bumped into any ZFS bugs that led to data corruption, please leave me a comment.
