The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that is better than any other file system on the market. It's really reliable and delivers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the drives which comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is damaged, it is repaired on the spot. Basically, the exact same website files are located on two or more hard drives and if there's a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive so as to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other widely used file systems features checksums. ZFS is also considerably faster and its efficiency is not impacted by the quantity of files stored on the servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be generated swifter and more frequently without affecting the functionality of the system.
