The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system that's better than any other file system on the market. It is very reliable and offers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives that make up a RAID array in real time and if a file is broken, it is repaired immediately. Essentially, the very same site files are stored on two or more drives and if there is a problem with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is employed from the other drive so as to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other popular file systems has checksums. ZFS is also much faster and its efficiency is not influenced by the number of files stored on the hosting servers. The larger speeds also allow backups to be created swifter and more frequently without affecting the efficiency of the system.

The shared web hosting solutions that we provide are set up on our ZFS-powered cloud platform and if you host your Internet sites with our company, you'll enjoy all the advantages of this file system. All hosting servers which are part of our cluster system use ZFS and include solid state drives and a large amount of RAM. Subsequently, your websites shall operate many times quicker than if they were running on a server with the standard setup which you shall find with other Internet hosting companies. For better overall performance, we use the ZFS file system on all clusters - not only the ones in which your files are located, but also those that manage the databases and the email messages. The file system provides significantly better loading speeds and ensures the integrity of your site since if a production server fails, we can switch to a backup one and it shall have the latest version of your Internet site or the latest e-mails that you have received. The higher backup speeds also permit us to create 4 daily backups of all your content - files, databases and e-mails. This makes our hosting plans the best solution for your websites if you are looking for a quick and efficient service.
