ZFS, which means Z File System, is an innovative file system which provides better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file features a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives operating together within a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the hard disks, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file saved on a hosting server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also works much faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be created faster and without slowing down the general performance of the whole server. In addition, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that might cause problems eventually, specifically for script programs that have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Web Hosting
We're among the few hosting service providers that have employed the ZFS file system and this allows us to offer a superior service compared with what you'll be able to find available on the market. When you acquire a shared web hosting
solution, it will be set up on our innovative cloud platform and all servers that comprise it use ZFS and have a large amount of RAM and SSD drives which allow us totake advantage of all features which the file system provides. In contrast to other businesses, we have no limit for the quantity of files you could have and your content will be safe at all times due to the data integrity which ZFS delivers. If you remove something accidentally or a script update doesn't go as planned, you'll be able to restore your site with a few mouse clicks since the faster backup speed the ZFS file system provides compared with other file systems permits us to generate four backups of your entire account daily. For greater results, we employ ZFS on our database and e-mail servers as well. As a consequence of the faster general performance of ZFS and the fact that even if a whole web server fails for whatever reason, we can switch to a backup server which will have the latest copy of your site, you'll not need to be worried about speed, reliability or data integrity anymore.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we have made a decision to employ it on all our servers that are a part of the sophisticated cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are set up. Effective servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and SSD drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not only the files which you upload, but any databases which you create and email messages that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service considerably over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no limitation to the number of files and emails you may have at any given time, but you'll also have four browsable backups of all your content each day and the backup generation will not influence the web server performance. Supplying such a number of backups is because of the significantly better data compression rates the ZFS system provides. Since all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup web server within a few moments if there is an issue with any server and the content on it shall be the latest one, so you will never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any data.
