ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system that delivers top performance for web sites and online applications. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for some reason on one of the hard disks, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also functions considerably faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire machine. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues eventually, especially for script applications which have a lot of files.
