ZFS, which means Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for websites and online apps. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard disks working together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be created considerably quicker and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole server. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that may be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit that may cause issues at some point, specifically for script programs which have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Hosting
Considering all 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 shared hosting account shall be set up. Our customized setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible as the other widely used control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a much faster and effective hosting service - we shall store your files, databases and emails on ZFS-powered machines which feature huge amounts of RAM and NVMe drives that'll deliver the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also leverage the faster backup generation that ZFS delivers, so we shall keep four different copies of all your files, databases and emails every single day without influencing the performance of the web servers - something that firms employing other file systems cannot offer. Every hosting server from the storage clusters also includes 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, naturally. Thus, if a server fails, we could switch to its backup within a few seconds, so your websites will be operational at all times and you'll never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the security of your hosting server.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we've decided to use it on all of our servers which are a part of the advanced cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Highly effective servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and NVMe drives shall ensure the very best possible performance of the file system and of any Internet site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not just the files that you upload, but any databases which you build and e-mails that you receive, which improves the quality of our service substantially over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no restriction to the number of files and e-mail messages that you can have at any time, but you shall also have four browsable backups of all your content each day and the backup generation will not impact the server functionality. Offering such a number of backups is a result of the superior data compression rates which the ZFS system provides. Due to the fact that all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup web server within seconds if there is an issue with any hosting server and the content on it will be the latest one, so you won't ever have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any data.
