The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is far better than any other file system these days. It's really reliable and delivers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms which use it. What makes it special 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 broken, it is repaired immediately. In simple terms, the very same website files are stored on two or more drives and if there's an issue with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive so as to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other commonly used file systems has checksums. ZFS is also much faster and its performance is not influenced by the quantity of files stored on the hosting servers. The higher speeds also allow backups to be set up quicker and more frequently without affecting the functionality of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems out there, we've made a decision to use it on all of our servers which are part of the sophisticated cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. Powerful machines with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives will ensure the very best possible performance of the file system and of any site hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not only the files which you upload, but any databases you create and email messages that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service considerably over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only shall there be no limitation to the amount of files and e-mails you may have at one time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all your content every day and the backup generation will not affect the web server efficiency. Supplying such a number of backups is due to the superior data compression rates that the ZFS system delivers. As all files are inspected in real time, we could also switch to a backup server within a few moments if there is a problem with any hosting server and the information on it shall be the latest one, so you'll never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any data.
