ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system which delivers better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file has 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 damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole machine. Furthermore, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script apps that have a huge number of files.

Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we have decided to employ it on all our web servers which are part of the innovative cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created. Powerful web servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not only the files you upload, but any databases which you make and e-mails that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service significantly over what you could find on the market. Not only shall there be no limit to the quantity of files and e-mails that you can have at any given time, but you will also have 4 browsable backups of all of your content each day and the backup generation won't impact the hosting server efficiency. Offering such a number of backups is because of the significantly better data compression rates that the ZFS system delivers. Due to the fact that all files are inspected in real time, we could also switch to a backup hosting server within a few moments if there is an issue with any server and the content on it shall be the latest one, so you'll never have to consider the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any content.
