The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system which is superior to any other file system out there. It is incredibly reliable and offers the very best performance for the hosting platforms that use it. What makes it different 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 same website files are stored 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 to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other popular file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also faster and its functionality is not affected by the amount of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be created faster and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
