The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that's superior to any other file system these days. It's very reliable and provides 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 files on the hard drives which make up a RAID array in real time and if any file is damaged, it's repaired immediately. Basically, the very same site files are located on two or more hard drives and if there's a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is employed from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other commonly used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also much faster and its performance isn't impacted by the quantity of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also allow backups to be generated faster and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
