ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which delivers better performance for websites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives functioning together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the drives, it's repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also functions faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be produced 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 that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that may cause problems eventually, particularly for script apps that have a huge number of files.
