The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that is far better than any other file system available on the market. It is incredibly reliable and offers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and if any file is damaged, it's repaired immediately. Essentially, the same site files are located on two or more hard drives and if there is an issue with a file on one drive, a good copy is used from the other drive in order to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other widespread file systems has checksums. ZFS is also considerably faster and its performance isn't impacted by the quantity of files stored on the servers. The larger speeds also enable backups to be created swifter and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
