The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system which is superior to any other file system available on the market. It's very reliable and delivers the very best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is damaged, it is repaired on the spot. Essentially, the exact same site files are stored on two or more hard disks and if there's an issue with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive in order to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other popular file systems has checksums. ZFS is also considerably quicker and its performance isn't influenced by the number of files stored on the servers. The bigger speeds also enable backups to be created swifter and more often without affecting the overall performance of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Hosting
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we've decided to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new shared hosting
account will be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other popular control panels cannot operate on ZFS. The result of our work is a much quicker and reliable web hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered servers that feature huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives that will deliver the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also leverage the considerably quicker backup generation which ZFS offers, so we shall keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and emails on a daily basis without compromising the performance of the hosting servers - something firms using other file systems simply cannot offer. Each and every web server from the storage clusters also features a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the latest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. Thus, if a hosting server fails, we will switch to its backup within seconds, so your Internet sites shall be operational at all times and you will never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your hosting server.
