The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system that is a lot better than any other file system these days. It is very reliable and delivers the best possible 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 hard drives which comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is broken, it's repaired immediately. Essentially, the exact same website files are saved on two or more drives and if there's an issue with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widespread file systems has checksums. ZFS is also faster and its performance is not affected by the number of files stored on the hosting servers. The larger speeds also enable backups to be generated faster and more often without affecting the overall performance of the system.
