The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is a lot better than any other file system these days. It's extremely reliable and offers the very best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the drives which comprise a RAID array in real time and in case a file is broken, it is repaired instantly. Essentially, the very same website files are located on two or more hard disks and if there's a problem with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive so as to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other popular file systems has checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its efficiency is not impacted by the number of files stored on the web servers. The larger speeds also allow backups to be created swifter and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
