ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system that provides better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole server. Furthermore, ZFS doesn't have a restriction for the total number of files which may be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause issues sooner or later, specifically for script applications which have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Website Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we have made a decision to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new shared website hosting account will be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other widely used control panels can't run on ZFS. The result of our work is a way quicker and effective web hosting service - we shall store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that include huge amounts of RAM and NVMe drives which will offer the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also take full advantage of the considerably faster backup generation which ZFS provides, so we will keep four different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails daily without lowering the performance of the hosting servers - something that firms employing other file systems cannot provide. Every server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system makes it possible to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. That way, if a web server fails, we could switch to its backup in seconds, so your sites will be operational at all times and you shall never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the security of your web server.
