The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system which is far better than any other file system out there. It is really reliable and offers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives which make up a RAID array in real time and if a file is broken, it is repaired right away. Essentially, the exact same website files are stored on two or more hard disks and if there's a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is used from the other drive to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other commonly used file systems features checksums. ZFS is also faster and its efficiency is not affected by the number of files stored on the hosting servers. The larger speeds also allow backups to be generated quicker and more often without affecting the functionality of the system.
