ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which provides better performance for sites and online programs. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard disks operating together within a RAID. If any file is broken for whatever 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 stored on a server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire machine. In addition, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that may cause problems sooner or later, especially for script programs that have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we have made a decision to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new hosting account will be set up. Our customized setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible as the other widely used control panels can't work on ZFS. The result of our work is a faster and effective hosting service - we will store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered machines which come with huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives which will deliver the best possible speed for your websites. We also leverage the considerably faster backup generation which ZFS delivers, so we shall keep four different copies of all your files, databases and email messages on a daily basis without lowering the performance of the web servers - something which firms employing other file systems can't provide. Every hosting server from the storage clusters also features 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, of course. Thus, if a hosting server fails, we will switch to its backup in seconds, so your websites shall be up and running at all times and you will never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your server.
