ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which offers better performance for web sites and online apps. 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 files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for any reason on one of the hard drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is ensured at all times. ZFS also works much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues eventually, especially for script programs which have a lot of files.

Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we've made a decision to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new cloud website hosting account shall be set up. 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 much faster and reliable web hosting service - we will store your files, databases and email messages on ZFS-powered hosting servers that include huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives which will deliver the best possible speed for your sites. We also take advantage of the considerably quicker backup generation that ZFS delivers, so we will keep four different copies of all your files, databases and email messages every day without lowering the performance of the web servers - something firms employing other file systems simply cannot provide. Each hosting server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the most recent copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. This way, if a web server fails, we will switch to its backup in seconds, so your sites shall be working at all times and you'll never have to worry about the integrity of your files or about the security of your hosting server.
