ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that provides top performance for Internet sites and online programs. 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 operating together within a RAID. If any file is broken for some reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also works much faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole machine. Also, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total amount of files that could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit which could cause problems eventually, particularly for script programs which have a lot of files.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Hosting

Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we've made a decision to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new cloud hosting account shall be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia Control Panel make this possible since the other well-known control panels can't run on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably faster and efficient hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered machines which feature huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives that'll deliver the best possible speed for your websites. We also take full advantage of the considerably quicker backup generation that ZFS offers, so we'll keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails every day without compromising the performance of the servers - something firms employing other file systems cannot provide. Each and every server from the storage clusters also includes a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the latest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, needless to say. Thus, if a server fails, we can switch to its backup within seconds, so your Internet sites shall be up and running at all times and you will never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your hosting server.
