ZFS, which means Z File System, is an innovative file system that delivers top performance for websites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard disks functioning together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire server. Additionally, ZFS doesn't 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 at some point, especially for script programs that have a huge number of files.
