ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides top performance for sites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for some reason on one of the hard drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a web server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be produced faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire server. Additionally, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that might cause issues sooner or later, specifically for script apps that have a large number of files.
