ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system which offers better performance for Internet sites and online applications. One of its key advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard disks functioning together in a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file located on a server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also functions considerably quicker than other file systems, that permits backups to be produced faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire web server. Furthermore, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files which can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which could cause issues eventually, specifically for script apps which have a huge number of files.
