The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system which is a lot better than any other file system on the market. It is very reliable and delivers the very best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the hard drives which comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is corrupted, it's repaired instantly. In simple terms, the same site files are saved on two or more hard disks and if there's a problem with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive so as to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other commonly used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also considerably quicker and its performance is not impacted by the amount of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be generated swifter and more often without affecting the overall performance of the system.
