The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that is a lot better than any other file system on the market. It's extremely reliable and delivers the very best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the hard disks that make up a RAID array in real time and if a file is corrupted, it is repaired immediately. In simple terms, 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 employed from the other drive to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other popular file systems has checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its performance isn't affected by the number of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also allow backups to be created quicker and more often without affecting the performance of the system.
