ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a progressive file system which delivers better performance for websites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is broken for some reason on one of the drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a server is ensured at all times. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire web server. In addition, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues at some point, particularly for script apps that have a huge number of files.
