ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for Internet sites and online programs. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be created considerably faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole server. Also, ZFS does not have a limit 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, specifically for script applications which have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Hosting
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it's not a surprise that we have decided to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new hosting account will be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other popular control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably faster and reliable hosting service - we shall store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that feature huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that will provide the best possible speed for your websites. We also take full advantage of the much faster backup generation which ZFS provides, so we'll keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails every day without influencing the performance of the servers - something which companies employing other file systems are not able to offer. Each hosting server from the storage clusters also features a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the newest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. Thus, if a server fails, we can switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your websites will be working at all times and you shall never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the security of your hosting server.
