the alternative would be XFS, but:
1) i'm using XFS on a backup server. I've *NEVER* seen so many crashes
in latest 2 month than in my 15 years by using ext[[2-4]
2) ZFS has native bit-rot protection and data scrubbing
3) ZFS has de-duplication and compression
4) In case of hardcrash, try to run a XFS fsck on a server with 12x
8TB disks..... Probably you need a week or more. on our backup server
(8TB raid-6) it took 18 hours.
