ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which delivers better performance for Internet sites and online apps. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the different hard disks working together in a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is guaranteed at all times. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be produced considerably faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole server. Additionally, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total number of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script applications which have a large number of files.
