The only person I know here that deals with "serious data storage" is Phoenix, but he hasn't been around here for quite a while. In his school district they use Supermicro storage systems.

RAID recommends use of RAID6 or RAID10 for larger arrays.
According to the ZFS equivalents for this are:
RAID-Z2 doubles the parity structure to achieve results similar to RAID 6: the ability to sustain up to two drive failures without losing data.[11] In July 2009, triple-parity RAID-Z3 was added to provide increased redundancy due to the extended resilver times of multi-terabyte disks
Having only played with ZFS for a few months, I don't know if Hammer has features to deal with the long resilver times of large arrays.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
