If you are dealing with large amounts of data, or providing a backing filesystem for virtualization, ZFS is a great choice.

2. High storage capacity (256 ZiB)
3. Snapshots and copy-on-write clones and continuous integrity checking to name but a few.

$ sudo apt install zfsutils-linux
2. After that, we can check if ZFS was installed correctly by running:
$ whereis zfs
