ZFS, which stands for Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for web sites and online apps. One of its serious 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 drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for some reason on one of the drives, it is restored from another travel with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a server is guaranteed at all times. ZFS also operates much faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the overall performance of the whole web server. In addition, ZFS doesn't 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 which could cause problems at some point, especially for script apps that have a large number of files.
