ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides better performance for websites and online apps. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard drives operating together in 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. Thus, the integrity of any file located on a server is ensured constantly. ZFS also operates considerably quicker than other file systems, that enables backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole web server. In addition, ZFS doesn't have a set limit for the total amount of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which could cause problems at some point, specifically for script programs that have a huge number of files.
