ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides top performance for Internet sites and online programs. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for some reason on one of the hard drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a server is ensured at all times. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be produced considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole web server. Additionally, ZFS does not have a limit for the total number of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that could cause issues at some point, particularly for script programs which have a huge number of files.

For better performance, we use the ZFS file system on all clusters - not simply the ones in which your files are saved, but also those that handle the databases and the email messages. The file system offers significantly better loading speeds and guarantees the integrity of your Internet site because if a production server fails, we could switch to a backup one and it will have the latest version of your website or the latest e-mails which you have received. The higher backup speeds also allow us to make 4 daily backups of all your content - files, databases and e-mails.
