2) QOS or IO throttle on a per ZFS dataset, would be very helpful in a virtual environment with many zones sharing the same pool

5) Zone live Migration support

1) iLB (Load Balancer) GUI (probably add to OEM cloud control or Ops Center)
2) iLB share stat between LB servers, This should include configuration + network state (possibly by adding support for carp or GLBP)
3) vswitch port mirriong

ZFS
1) A an important missing feature to auto pool re-balance/hot spot relocation support (used to be called BP-Rewrite), pool shrink and or pool raid configuration change (for example: from raiz2 to mirror)

3) Faster/More new compression algorithms (for example lz4)
4) ZFS enhanced DE-sup support, for example: understanding file headers and byte level de-dup, making the d-dup feture much more powerful and usable for backups/etc…
5) Solaris ZFS PNFS support
6) Solaris ZFS object store support

Application
1) Package repo (IPS) for Oracle Application like (Oracle database/weblogic/etc…), making the install possible with a click of a button

General features
1) Memory compression (possibly de-duplication)
2) Solaris DTrace analytics GUI (something like the ZFS appliance)
