Actually I'd go further and differentiate the two by suggesting that if you
use ECC memory (which you definitely should for a business server) then ZFS is
the way to go. If for some reason you can't use ECC memory, then mdadm is
arguably the thing to use (although there is certainly a valid position that
says that ZFS is /still/ the right one). At least, that's the way I have my
systems configured.
