ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides better performance for sites and online programs. One of its key 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 functioning together in a RAID. If any file is broken for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause problems at some point, especially for script programs that have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Website Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we've chose to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new website hosting account shall be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible because the other popular control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably faster and efficient hosting service - we will store your files, databases and email messages on ZFS-powered servers that feature huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives which will offer the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also take full advantage of the considerably faster backup generation that ZFS offers, so we'll keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and email messages every single day without influencing the performance of the web servers - something companies using other file systems can't offer. Each web server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system makes it possible to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. Thus, if a hosting server fails, we will switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your Internet sites will be up and running at all times and you will never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your web server.
