ZFS, which means Z File System, is a progressive file system that offers better performance for web sites and online apps. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives working together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the hard drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total number of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which could cause problems at some point, specifically for script apps that have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Web Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we've chose to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new web hosting account will be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other popular control panels cannot run on ZFS. The result of our work is a much quicker and effective hosting service - we will store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that feature huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that will offer the best possible speed for your sites. We also take advantage of the considerably faster backup generation which ZFS provides, so we'll keep four different copies of all your files, databases and email messages every single day without lowering the performance of the servers - something that firms employing other file systems are not able to provide. Each and every server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system makes it possible to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. This way, if a web server fails, we could switch to its backup within seconds, so your websites will be operational at all times and you shall never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your web server.
