ZFS, which means Z File System, is an innovative file system which offers top performance for sites and online apps. 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 several hard disks functioning together in a RAID. If any file is broken for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also operates faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be generated considerably quicker and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole web server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total amount of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit that might cause issues at some point, especially for script apps that have a lot of files.
