ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which provides better performance for sites and online apps. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard disks functioning together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another travel with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit which might cause problems eventually, specifically for script applications that have a huge number of files.
