ZFS is one of the most highly developed file systems out there and it surpasses any other file system when it comes to speed, performance and stability. The speed at which information is processed on a server using ZFS is greater, so not simply will any websites hosted on the machine be read and executed considerably faster, but also backups can be produced swifter and more frequently without affecting the general performance. Moreover, ZFS uses checksums - digital algorithms that are used to identify corrupted files. Every time the file system detects that there is a problem with a specific file, it fixes it using a good copy from another disk drive within the RAID. Both the checks and the repairs are carried out right away, so the data stored on ZFS-based servers will be safe at all times as it practically can't get corrupted. One more advantage of ZFS over other file systems is that there's no limit for the total amount of files which may be stored inside a single account or on the server as a whole.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems out there, we have made a decision to employ it on all of our web servers which are a part of the innovative cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. Powerful servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and SSD drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not only the files that you upload, but also any databases you create and emails that you receive, which increases the quality of our service significantly over what you could find on the market. Not only shall there be no restriction to the amount of files and email messages that you can have at any given time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all your content every day and the backup generation shall not affect the server performance. Offering such a number of backups is a result of the significantly better data compression rates that the ZFS system provides. As all files are checked out in real time, we could also switch to a backup hosting server in seconds if there is an issue with any server and the data on it will be the latest one, so you'll never need to consider the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any information.
