ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides better performance for websites and online programs. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire web server. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a limit for the total amount of files which could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause issues eventually, specifically for script programs that have a large number of files.
