ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides top performance for web sites and online apps. 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 the files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard disks, it's repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a hosting server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, that enables backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files which could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause issues eventually, especially for script applications that have a large number of files.
