Since its for production, i would avoid both zfs and btrfs. But i
guess there aren't many options available a.t.m. Best is to wait for
btrfs to be production ready.
Wouldn't splitting the 11TB filesystem to smaller filesystems work ?
You wont able able to avoid the fsck or disruption in service, but
atleast you can bring up critical mounts faster.
