ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for websites and online applications. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is broken for some reason on one of the hard drives, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably quicker and without slowing down the performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause problems sooner or later, particularly for script programs that have a lot of files.
