It can store all of the data that all of humanity has ever produced with room to spare....

The main features that set ZFS apart from many competing filesystems are its support for astronomically large storage systems and its near-manic obsession with data integrity.

A single ZFS filesystem can theoretically scale to as many as 256 quintillion zettabytes, or 2.56 1041 bytes. Your Reg hack has a hard time conceptualizing just how big that is, but suffice it to say that it's big enough to hold all of the data you have ever produced.
Production-ready ZFS offers cosmic-scale storage for Linux ? The Register

NFN, a Zettabyte: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Bytes)

-or-

1 Billion Terabytes

Don't know about the rest of ya'll but I'm disappointed, it can't support Domegemegrottebytes of storage......

ZFS has such a large overhead, though. Aren't the bare minimum requirements like 4GB RAM?

If you measure you data in zettabytes, you've got more than 4GB on your RAID controllers.
