ZFS, which means Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for sites and online programs. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the hard disks, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is ensured at all times. ZFS also functions considerably faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created considerably quicker and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that could cause issues sooner or later, especially for script apps which have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Website Hosting
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we have chose to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new cloud website hosting account will be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible as the other popular control panels can't run on ZFS. The result of our work is a much faster and efficient 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'll offer the best possible speed for your websites. We also take advantage of the faster backup generation that ZFS provides, so we will keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and emails every single day without influencing the performance of the hosting servers - something companies using other file systems are not able to provide. Each and every web server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. This way, if a machine fails, we will switch to its backup in seconds, so your websites shall be working at all times and you shall never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your web server.
