Hi,

To answer your question: Yes you can use it with ZFS. It even mentions 
ZFS in the FAQ.

BUT, I do agree with Durval the ARC (or ZFS as whole with all it's 
settings) might do a better job. There might be some very very specific 
corner cases where rapiddisk might be better/usefull, but my feeling 
says to stay away from it.

Greets,

Sander
