Talk by Rainbow at OpenZFS Developer Summit 2018:

Managing ZVOLs with vzvol

vzvol is an easy to use ZFS zvol manager, that wraps around existing commands, and ties in extra functionality (like easily creating a shim VMDK file to point to the zvol for use with VirtualBox, formatting and importing disk images to zvols, and maintaining an easy to read list of your zvols).

The code is available at https://github.com/RainbowHackerHorse/vzvol

I kinda approached it as "iocage but for zvols", if you're familiar with iocage.
