The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is superior to any other file system available on the market. It is incredibly reliable and delivers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the hard disks that make up a RAID array in real time and if a file is damaged, it's repaired instantly. In simple terms, the exact same site files are located on two or more drives and if there is a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widely used file systems features checksums. ZFS is also much faster and its functionality isn't influenced by the quantity of files stored on the web servers. The larger speeds also allow backups to be created quicker and more often without affecting the functionality of the system.
