ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system which offers better performance for web sites and online apps. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it is restored from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file stored on a hosting server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, that enables backups to be created faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files which could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues eventually, especially for script applications which have a large number of files.

accounts are set up. Highly effective servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any Internet site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not just the files you upload, but also any databases which you create and emails which you receive, which increases the quality of our service considerably over what you'll be able to find on the market.

Supplying such a number of backups is due to the significantly better data compression rates that the ZFS system offers.
