The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is much better than any other file system on the market. It is very reliable and delivers the very best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the hard drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and if any file is corrupted, it is repaired on the spot. Essentially, the exact same site files are located on two or more hard disks and if there is a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is employed from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widely used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its efficiency is not influenced by the number of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also allow backups to be set up faster and more often without affecting the performance of the system.
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 decided to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new shared website hosting account will be created. Our customized setup and the Hepsia Control Panel make this possible because the other popular control panels can't work on ZFS. The result of our work is a much faster and efficient web hosting service - we shall store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered machines which come with huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives that'll provide the best possible speed for your sites. We also take advantage of the faster backup generation that ZFS delivers, so we'll keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails every single day without compromising the performance of the servers - something which firms using other file systems cannot provide. Each web server from the storage clusters also features a backup machine and the ZFS file system allows us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, naturally. Thus, if a hosting server fails, we can switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your sites shall be working at all times and you shall never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your server.
