ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that offers top performance for websites and online programs. One of its key 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 functioning together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for any reason on one of the hard drives, it's repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also functions much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire machine. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit which may cause issues at some point, specifically for script apps which have a large number of files.
