ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a progressive file system which offers better performance for web sites and online programs. 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 within a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file saved on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also works considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated faster and without slowing down the performance of the entire server. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a restriction for the total number of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that might cause problems eventually, specifically for script programs that have a huge number of files.
