ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a progressive file system that provides better performance for websites and online applications. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be created faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that might cause issues sooner or later, specifically for script apps that have a lot of files.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Hosting

Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we have decided to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new hosting account will be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia Control Panel make this possible as the other widely used control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably quicker and efficient web hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered machines which include huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives that'll deliver the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also take advantage of the much faster backup generation that ZFS provides, so we'll keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails daily without influencing the performance of the servers - something that firms using other file systems cannot provide. Every web server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system allows us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. This way, if a server fails, we will switch to its backup within seconds, so your websites will be functioning at all times and you shall never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your hosting server.
