'No BS' web host Gandi lives up to half of its motto... Some customer data wiped out in storage server meltdown

zfs is a file system, not a backup system. It guarantees that any data you read from the disk will be exactly the same as what you (or a virus etc) wrote to it. It does not guarantee that you will get it back. Other file systems will give you corrupted data in situations where zfs will know it has been destroyed and not give you anything.
