ZFS, which means Z File System, is a progressive file system which delivers top performance for web sites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for some reason on one of the hard drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a hosting server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated considerably faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole server. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files which may be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit which could cause issues eventually, specifically for script apps which have a lot of files.
