ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides top performance for sites and online programs. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the hard disks, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is ensured at all times. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, that enables backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS doesn't have a restriction for the total amount of files that could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit which could cause issues sooner or later, specifically for script applications which have a huge number of files.
