ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that offers better performance for websites and online applications. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives operating together in a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a hosting server is ensured constantly. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues eventually, particularly for script apps which have a lot of files.
