The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system that is superior to any other file system out there. It is very reliable and delivers the very best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard disks that comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is broken, it is repaired instantly. In simple terms, the exact same site files are saved on two or more hard disks and if there is a problem with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is used from the other drive so as to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other widespread file systems has checksums. ZFS is also considerably faster and its efficiency isn't affected by the number of files stored on the web servers. The higher speeds also enable backups to be set up faster and more often without affecting the performance of the system.
