I've heard FreeBSD8's ZFS support is pretty stable, yeah.  Stable enough
to be used in production.  I'm not sure I'd wholly trust any FreeBSD7
version's ZFS in production, but ...  well, I'm not a FreeBSD wonk, so
I'm not the person to ask.

X4500s would definitely be a sound way to go.  LSI Logic is also a
pretty safe bet.
