ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is an innovative file system which offers top performance for Internet sites and online apps. 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 different hard disks functioning together within a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard disks, it's 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 operates considerably quicker than other file systems, which allows backups to be created faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole machine. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit which may cause issues at some point, specifically for script applications which have a large number of files.
