ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides top performance for Internet sites and online apps. 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 files between the different hard disks operating together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for some reason on one of the drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is guaranteed at all times. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably quicker and without slowing down the performance of the entire web server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files which could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause problems at some point, specifically for script applications which have a lot of files.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we have made a decision to employ it on all our hosting servers that are a part of the sophisticated cloud platform where new semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created. Potent web servers with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any Internet site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not only the files you upload, but any databases which you make and email messages which you receive, which increases the quality of our service substantially over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only shall there be no limitation to the amount of files and e-mail messages you could have at any given time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all of your content each and every day and the backup generation shall not influence the web server functionality. Supplying such a number of backups is a result of the significantly better data compression rates which the ZFS system provides. As all files are inspected in real time, we could also switch to a backup hosting server within a few moments if there is an issue with any server and the information on it shall be the latest one, so you'll never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any data.
