ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which delivers better performance for web sites and online programs. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives working together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for some reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions considerably faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be produced considerably faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit which may cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script applications which have a lot of files.
