ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system which delivers top performance for Internet sites and online programs. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives working together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be created considerably quicker and without slowing down the general performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that could cause issues at some point, especially for script applications which have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Hosting
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it's not a surprise that we have chose to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new cloud hosting account shall be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other popular control panels can't operate on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably faster and efficient hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that come with huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives that will deliver the best possible speed for your websites. We also leverage the much faster backup generation which ZFS delivers, so we will keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails on a daily basis without influencing the performance of the servers - something which firms using other file systems are not able to offer. Each and every hosting server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system allows us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. Thus, if a server fails, we can switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your Internet sites will be working at all times and you shall never have to worry about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your web server.
