ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that provides better performance for sites and online apps. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard disks operating together within a RAID. If any file is damaged for any reason on one of the drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is guaranteed all of the time. ZFS also operates faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that can be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit which could cause issues at some point, especially for script apps that have a huge number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Web Hosting
We are among the very few hosting service providers which have employed the ZFS file system and this enables us to offer you a superior service compared with what you can find on the market. When you get a web hosting
package, it will be created on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and all hosting servers that comprise it employ ZFS and feature a large amount of RAM and SSD drives which permit us touse all attributes that the file system offers. In contrast to other companies, we have no restriction for the number of files you can have and your content will be safe at all times as a result of the data integrity which ZFS offers. If you delete something by mistake or a script update does not go as planned, you will be able to recover your Internet site with several mouse clicks since the bigger backup speed which the ZFS file system provides compared with other file systems allows us to produce 4 backups of your whole account daily. For greater results, we use ZFS on our database and email servers as well. Because of the the much faster overall performance of ZFS and the fact that even if a whole web server fails for whatever reason, we can switch to a backup server that shall have the latest copy of your website, you won't have 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 on the market, we have decided to employ it on all of our hosting servers which are part of the sophisticated cloud platform where new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are created. Effective machines with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives will guarantee the very best possible performance of the file system and of any site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not just the files that you upload, but also any databases you create and email messages which you receive, which increases the quality of our service tremendously over what you could find on the market. Not only shall there be no restriction to the amount of files and emails you may have at any time, but you shall also have four browsable backups of all of your content on a daily basis and the backup generation shall not influence the web server efficiency. Providing such a number of backups is a result of the superior data compression rates that the ZFS system provides. Since all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup machine within a few moments if there is a problem with any machine and the information on it shall be the latest one, so you will never need to think about the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any information.
