The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that's a lot better than any other file system on the market. It is really reliable and delivers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms that use it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the hard disks which comprise a RAID array in real time and in case a file is broken, it's repaired on the spot. Basically, the very same website files are saved on two or more hard drives and if there is a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive in order to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other commonly used file systems features checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its efficiency is not affected by the amount of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be created swifter and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
