ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system that offers better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard disks working together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the drives, it's restored from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also works faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be generated considerably faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire machine. Additionally, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files which could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction that could cause issues eventually, particularly for script programs that have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting packages which we provide are set up on our ZFS-powered cloud hosting platform and if you host your websites with our company, you'll enjoy all of the advantages of this file system. All hosting servers which are part of our cluster system employ ZFS and come with solid state drives and a lot of RAM. Therefore, your sites will function many times faster than if they were running on a web server with the standard setup which you will find with other Internet hosting companies. For better efficiency, we employ the ZFS file system on all clusters - not only the ones in which your files are kept, but also those that handle the databases and the e-mails. The file system delivers superior loading speeds and guarantees the integrity of your website since if a production server fails, we could switch to a backup one and it shall have the latest version of your website or the latest email messages that you have received. The higher backup speeds also enable us to generate 4 daily backups of all your content - files, databases and e-mails. This makes our Internet hosting packages the best solution for your websites if you are searching for a quick and reliable service.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems out there, we've decided to use it on all of our hosting servers which are a part of the state-of-the-art cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Effective hosting servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives shall ensure the best possible performance of the file system and of any Internet site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not just the files which you upload, but any databases that you make and email messages that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service significantly over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no limitation to the number of files and email messages you could have at one time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all of your content each day and the backup generation will not influence the hosting server functionality. Providing such a number of backups is due to the significantly better data compression rates that the ZFS system offers. As all files are inspected in real time, we can also switch to a backup web server within seconds if there is an issue with any server and the content on it will be the latest one, so you'll never need to think about the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any information.
