The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is better than any other file system out there. It's extremely reliable and delivers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms that use it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard disks which make up a RAID array in real time and if any file is broken, it's repaired right away. Essentially, the same site files are located on two or more hard disks and if there is an issue with a file on one drive, a good copy is employed from the other drive in order to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widespread file systems features checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its efficiency isn't influenced by the amount of files stored on the hosting servers. The larger speeds also allow backups to be generated swifter and more frequently without affecting the efficiency of the system.
