ZFS, which means Z File System, is an innovative file system that provides top performance for sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard disks functioning together in a RAID. If any file is broken for any reason on one of the drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file located on a hosting server is ensured at all times. ZFS also works much faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be produced faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total amount of files that may be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that might cause problems sooner or later, especially for script programs that have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Hosting
We are among the very few hosting service providers that have employed the ZFS file system and this permits us to offer a superior service as compared with what you could find available on the market. In case you acquire a shared hosting
plan, it shall be created on our advanced cloud platform and all hosting servers which comprise it use ZFS and include a large amount of RAM and SSD drives which allow us totake advantage of all attributes which the file system provides. In contrast to other firms, we have no restriction for the number of files you could have and your content will be safe at all times because of the data integrity which ZFS delivers. If you erase something by accident or a script update does not go as planned, you shall be able to recover your web site with a couple of mouse clicks since the higher backup speed the ZFS file system provides compared with other file systems allows us to produce four backups of your whole account each day. For better results, we use ZFS on our database and mail servers too. Due to the the much faster overall performance of ZFS and the fact that even if an entire server fails for whatever reason, we can switch to a backup server which shall have the latest copy of your Internet site, you will not have to concern yourself with speed, reliability or data integrity anymore.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all of the advantages which ZFS has over other file systems out there, we have made a decision to employ it on all our web servers that are part of the innovative cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are created. Powerful servers with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and SSD drives shall ensure the very best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not just the files which you upload, but any databases that you create and emails which you receive, which improves the quality of our service considerably over what you can find on the market. Not only will there be no restriction to the number of files and emails that you can have at any time, but you'll also have 4 browsable backups of all of your content each day and the backup generation will not affect the hosting server performance. Offering such a number of backups is a result of the significantly better data compression rates which the ZFS system provides. Due to the fact that all files are checked out in real time, we could also switch to a backup server within seconds if there is an issue with any hosting server and the information on it will be the latest one, so you will never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any data.
