The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system which is superior to any other file system available on the market. It's very reliable and provides the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms that employ it. What makes it unique is that it compares the so-called checksum of all files on the drives which make up a RAID array in real time and in case a file is damaged, it is repaired right away. Essentially, the very same site files are saved on two or more hard disks and if there is an issue with a file on one hard disk, a good copy is used from the other drive so as to restore that file. In comparison, none of the other commonly used file systems uses checksums. ZFS is also much quicker and its performance isn't affected by the quantity of files stored on the web servers. The higher speeds also enable backups to be set up faster and more frequently without affecting the functionality of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Hosting
We're among the few hosting providers which have employed the ZFS file system and this permits us to provide a superior service compared with what you'll be able to find on the market. If you purchase a shared hosting
plan, it'll be created on our sophisticated cloud platform and all web servers that comprise it employ ZFS and have a large amount of RAM and SSD drives that permit us tomake use of all functions which the file system offers. In contrast to other companies, we have no limit for the amount of files that you can have and your content will be safe at all times because of the data integrity that ZFS delivers. If you erase something unintentionally or a script update does not go as planned, you'll be able to recover your site with a couple of mouse clicks because the higher backup speed the ZFS file system delivers compared with other file systems enables us to produce 4 backups of your entire account every day. For greater results, we use ZFS on our database and mail servers also. Considering the faster general performance of ZFS and the fact that even if an entire hosting server fails for whatever reason, we could switch to a backup server that shall have the latest copy of your website, you'll not have to bother about speed, reliability or data integrity anymore.
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've made a decision to use it on all of our servers which are part of the advanced cloud platform where new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are created. Powerful machines with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives will ensure the very best possible performance of the file system and of any Internet site hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not just the files that you upload, but any databases which you create and email messages which you receive, which increases the quality of our service considerably over what you could find on the market. Not only will there be no limitation to the number of files and e-mail messages you could have at any given time, but you will also have four browsable backups of all your content each day and the backup generation won't affect the server performance. Supplying such a number of backups is because of the much better data compression rates that the ZFS system provides. As all files are inspected in real time, we can also switch to a backup server in seconds if there is an issue with any machine and the content on it will be the latest one, so you'll never need to consider the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any content.
