The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system that is far better than any other file system on the market. It's incredibly reliable and delivers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the drives which make up a RAID array in real time and if a file is damaged, it is repaired on the spot. Basically, the same site files are located on two or more hard disks and if there is an issue with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive in order to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other commonly used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also faster and its functionality isn't impacted by the number of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also allow backups to be generated quicker and more frequently without affecting the overall performance of the system.
