ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system that offers top performance for sites and online programs. 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 disks operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire hosting server. Furthermore, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which may cause problems sooner or later, particularly for script applications which have a large number of files.
