ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different 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 hosting server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be produced considerably quicker and without slowing down the performance of the entire server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total number of files which may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that could cause issues at some point, particularly for script programs which have a huge number of files.
