ZFS, which means Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides better performance for sites and online applications. 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 different hard drives working together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, 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 produced considerably quicker and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire web server. Additionally, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total number of files which could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that might cause issues eventually, especially for script apps which have a huge number of files.

The hosting plans which we offer are developed on our ZFS-powered cloud hosting platform and if you host your websites with us, you will have all the advantages of this file system. All servers which are a part of our cluster system use ZFS and feature SSD drives and a large amount of RAM. Because of this, your websites shall operate many times faster than if they were running on a server with the conventional setup which you will find with other hosting companies. For better overall performance, we employ the ZFS file system on all clusters - not just the ones where your files are kept, but also the ones which manage the databases and the email messages. The file system provides significantly better loading speeds and guarantees the integrity of your website given that if a production server fails, we can easily switch to a backup one and it'll have the latest version of your website or the latest e-mails that you have received. The greater backup speeds also enable us to generate four daily backups of all your content - files, databases and e-mails. This makes our web hosting packages the best solution for your sites if you are looking for a fast and dependable service.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems on the market, we have decided to employ it on all our web servers that are part of the state-of-the-art cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting accounts are set up. Highly effective hosting servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and SSD drives shall ensure the best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not only the files which you upload, but any databases that you create and e-mails that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service substantially over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no limitation to the amount of files and e-mail messages you may have at any given time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all of your content each and every day and the backup generation will not influence the server functionality. Offering such a number of backups is due to the significantly better data compression rates which the ZFS system delivers. Because all files are inspected in real time, we could also switch to a backup hosting server within seconds if there is an issue with any server and the data on it will be the latest one, so you won't ever need to consider the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any data.
