The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system that's superior to any other file system available on the market. It's incredibly reliable and delivers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms which use it. What makes it exceptional is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and in case a file is damaged, it is repaired on the spot. In simple terms, the very same site files are stored on two or more drives and if there is an issue with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other widespread file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also considerably quicker and its performance isn't influenced by the number of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be set up quicker and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
