ZFS, which signifies Z File System, is a progressive file system that provides better performance for Internet sites and online apps. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the several hard disks working together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the drives, it's restored from another drive with the correct checksum. This way, the integrity of any file stored on a server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also functions considerably faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably quicker and without slowing down the performance of the entire server. Furthermore, ZFS doesn't have a limit for the total amount of files which could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which could cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script apps which have a lot of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Hosting
We are among the very few hosting providers that have employed the ZFS file system and this enables us to offer a superior service compared with what you can find on the market. In case you obtain a hosting
package, it will be created on our advanced cloud platform and all servers that comprise it use ZFS and come with a large amount of RAM and SSD drives which allow us touse all capabilities the file system provides. In contrast to other firms, we have no restriction for the amount of files that you can have and your content shall be safe at all times because of the data integrity that ZFS delivers. If you remove something unintentionally or a script update doesn't go as planned, you'll be able to restore your website with a couple of clicks since the greater backup speed that the ZFS file system provides compared with other file systems enables us to create 4 backups of your entire account each day. For better results, we employ ZFS on our database and mail servers also. Considering the faster overall performance of ZFS and the fact that even if an entire hosting server fails for whatever reason, we could switch to a backup hosting server that shall have the latest copy of your website, you'll not have to bother about speed, reliability or data integrity anymore.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems on the market, we have decided to employ it on all our web servers that are a part of the sophisticated cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are set up. Potent servers with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives shall ensure the best possible performance of the file system and of any site hosted on our end. We employ the same setup for storing not only the files which you upload, but also any databases which you make and e-mails that you receive, which boosts the quality of our service tremendously over what you could find on the market. Not only will there be no limit to the amount of files and e-mails that you can 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 won't impact the server performance. Providing such a number of backups is a result of the significantly better data compression rates that the ZFS system provides. Due to the fact that all files are checked in real time, we can also switch to a backup hosting server in seconds if there is a problem 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 worry about losing any data.
