ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides better performance for Internet sites and online programs. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the different hard disks functioning together within a RAID. If any file is broken for some reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be produced considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire hosting server. Also, ZFS doesn't have a restriction for the total number of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction that might cause issues at some point, particularly for script applications that have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Website Hosting
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we have made a decision to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new shared website hosting account will be set up. Our customized setup and the Hepsia Control Panel make this possible since the other well-known control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a way quicker and efficient hosting service - we will store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that come with huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that will provide the best possible speed for your sites. We also take advantage of the much faster backup generation that ZFS delivers, so we will keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and email messages every day without lowering the performance of the servers - something that companies employing other file systems simply cannot provide. Each and every web server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the latest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, needless to say. That way, if a hosting server fails, we will switch to its backup in seconds, so your Internet sites will be up and running at all times and you'll never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the security of your web server.
