The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system that is much better than any other file system these days. It is incredibly reliable and offers the very best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it exceptional is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard disks that comprise a RAID array in real time and if any file is corrupted, it is repaired immediately. Essentially, the very same site files are located on two or more hard drives and if there is a problem with a file on one drive, a good copy is used from the other drive in order to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other widespread file systems has checksums. ZFS is also faster and its efficiency is not affected by the amount of files stored on the hosting servers. The higher speeds also allow backups to be set up quicker and more often without affecting the overall performance of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Website Hosting
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we've decided to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new cloud website hosting account will be created. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible because the other widely used control panels can't work on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably quicker and effective web hosting service - we will store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered hosting servers that feature huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that will offer the best possible speed for your sites. We also leverage the much faster backup generation that ZFS delivers, so we shall keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and emails every day without lowering the performance of the web servers - something that companies employing other file systems can't provide. Every hosting server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system makes it possible to have the newest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, needless to say. Thus, if a web server fails, we could switch to its backup within seconds, so your websites will be operational at all times and you'll never have to worry about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your hosting server.
