ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which delivers better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard disks working together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for any reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a hosting server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also functions much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created considerably faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire server. In addition, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction that could cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script programs which have a lot of files.
