ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that delivers top performance for web sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the different hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also functions considerably faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total number of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause problems eventually, especially for script applications which have a huge number of files.

For better performance, we use the ZFS file system on all clusters - not only the ones in which your files are stored, but also those that deal with the databases and the emails. The file system delivers much better loading speeds and ensures the integrity of your website as if a production server fails, we can switch to a backup one and it shall have the latest version of your site or the latest emails that you have received. The greater backup speeds also allow us to generate 4 daily backups of all your content - files, databases and e-mails. This makes our hosting packages the best solution for your websites if you are looking for a fast and dependable service.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems out there, we have made a decision to employ it on all our servers that are part of the advanced cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. Highly effective machines with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives shall guarantee the very best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not only the files you upload, but any databases that you create and emails which you receive, which improves the quality of our service considerably over what you are able to find on the market. Not only shall there be no limit to the quantity of files and emails you may have at one time, but you'll also have 4 browsable backups of all your content each and every day and the backup generation shall not affect the hosting server performance. Offering such a number of backups is because of the significantly better data compression rates which the ZFS system delivers. Since all files are inspected in real time, we can also switch to a backup hosting server within a few moments if there is an issue with any server and the data on it will be the latest one, so you will never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any content.
