ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides top performance for sites and online apps. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file features 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 corrupted for any reason on one of the hard drives, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be created faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire web server. In addition, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files which could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that may cause issues at some point, especially for script programs that have a huge number of files.

Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we've decided to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new hosting account will be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible because the other popular control panels can't work on ZFS. The result of our work is a faster and effective hosting service - we will store your files, databases and email messages on ZFS-powered servers that include huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives which will offer the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also take advantage of the considerably quicker backup generation which ZFS offers, so we'll keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails every day without compromising the performance of the hosting servers - something firms employing other file systems can't offer. Each and every hosting server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. Thus, if a server fails, we will switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your websites will be up and running at all times and you'll never have to worry about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your hosting server.
