ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system that delivers better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be created faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files which could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause issues sooner or later, especially for script programs which have a lot of files.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Hosting

Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it's not a surprise that we have chose to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new cloud hosting account will be created. Our customized setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible because the other popular control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a much faster and effective web hosting service - we shall store your files, databases and email messages on ZFS-powered servers that include huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that'll provide the best possible speed for your websites. We also take full advantage of the considerably faster backup generation that ZFS provides, so we'll keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails every single day without affecting the performance of the hosting servers - something firms using other file systems simply cannot provide. Every web server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the newest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, needless to say. Thus, if a server fails, we can switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your Internet sites will be up and running at all times and you will never have to worry about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your hosting server.
