ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides better performance for Internet sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes 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 damaged for some reason on one of the hard disks, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be produced much faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole machine. In addition, ZFS does not have a limit for the total number of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit which could cause problems eventually, specifically for script applications which have a large number of files.
