The Z File System, or ZFS, is an advanced file system that is a lot better than any other file system these days. It's incredibly reliable and offers the best possible performance for the hosting platforms that use it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is broken, it's repaired right away. In simple terms, the same website files are stored on two or more hard disks and if there's a problem with a file on one drive, a good copy is used from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widely used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also considerably quicker and its functionality isn't impacted by the amount of files stored on the hosting servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be set up quicker and more frequently without affecting the efficiency of the system.
