  1. I noticed that when creating zfs pools on freenas it always creates them on top of geli, even if I'm not using disk encryption. Why?
  2.  
  3. I know the way it uses geli forces the use of 4k sectors so that the zpool has ashift=12, but couldn't the same thing be done by using a gpt partition with 4k alignment?
  4.  
  5. Also can you explain how freenas is using geli for "non encrypted" drives? Where's the key? Should I be worried about losing it?
  6.  
  7. Thanks for the great show!
