The Z File System, or ZFS, is a high level file system that is a lot better than any other file system out there. It is really reliable and delivers the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms which use it. What makes it special is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives which comprise a RAID array in real time and if a file is damaged, it's repaired right away. In simple terms, the same website files are saved on two or more drives and if there's an issue with a file on one drive, a good copy is used from the other drive to restore that file. By comparison, none of the other widely used file systems has checksums. ZFS is also considerably faster and its efficiency is not affected by the number of files stored on the servers. The higher speeds also allow backups to be created swifter and more often without affecting the functionality of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Web Hosting
The web hosting
packages we provide are set up on our ZFS-powered cloud platform and if you host your sites with us, you'll enjoy all the advantages of this file system. All web servers which are part of our cluster system use ZFS and come with solid state drives and a large amount of RAM. Subsequently, your sites will work many times quicker than if they were running on a server with the standard setup which you will find with other web hosting companies. For better overall performance, we use the ZFS file system on all clusters - not just the ones where your files are located, but also those which manage the databases and the email messages. The file system provides superior loading speeds and ensures the integrity of your site because if a production server fails, we can easily switch to a backup one and it will have the latest version of your site or the latest emails that you have received. The greater backup speeds also enable us to create 4 daily backups of all your content - files, databases and email messages. This makes our web hosting plans the best solution for your sites if you are looking for a quick and efficient service.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we've made a decision to use it on all our web servers that are part of the innovative cloud platform where new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are set up. Effective machines with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and solid state drives will guarantee 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 that you upload, but also any databases which you create and email messages that you receive, which raises the quality of our service considerably over what you can find on the market. Not only shall there be no limitation to the amount of files and email messages you may have at any time, but you shall also have four browsable backups of all your content each day and the backup generation shall not influence the web server functionality. Offering such a number of backups is because of the superior data compression rates that the ZFS system delivers. As all files are checked out in real time, we can also switch to a backup machine within seconds if there is a problem with any server and the information on it shall be the latest one, so you won't ever need to consider the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any content.
