ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides top performance for sites and online apps. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard disks functioning together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for any reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire web server. Furthermore, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction that may cause problems sooner or later, particularly for script applications that have a lot of files.
