The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that's far better than any other file system out there. It is incredibly reliable and delivers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives that make up a RAID array in real time and if any file is damaged, it's repaired right away. In simple terms, the same site files are located on two or more hard drives and if there's a problem with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is used from the other drive in order to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other widely used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also much faster and its functionality is not influenced by the amount of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be created faster and more often without affecting the performance of the system.
