ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system which offers better performance for web sites and online applications. One of its key 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 different hard disks operating together within a RAID. If any file is broken for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it's repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file located on a server is guaranteed at all times. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated considerably quicker and without slowing down the overall performance of the entire hosting server. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that could cause issues sooner or later, particularly for script apps that have a lot of files.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Website Hosting

We are among the very few hosting service providers that have employed the ZFS file system and this enables us to provide a superior service compared with what you'll be able to find available on the market. If you purchase a cloud website hosting package, it shall be created on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and all servers that comprise it use ZFS and come with a large amount of RAM and SSD drives that permit us touse all capabilities the file system provides. In contrast to other companies, we have no restriction for the number of files which you could have and your content shall be safe at all times as a result of the data integrity which ZFS offers. If you delete something by accident or a script update doesn't go as planned, you will be able to recover your web site with several clicks as the bigger backup speed which the ZFS file system delivers compared with other file systems allows us to create 4 backups of your entire account every day. For greater results, we use ZFS on our database and mail servers as well. As a consequence of the faster performance of ZFS and the fact that even if an entire server fails for some reason, we can switch to a backup machine which shall have the latest copy of your site, you will not need to be worried about speed, reliability or data integrity anymore.

ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers

Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems on the market, we've decided to use it on all our web servers that are a part of the sophisticated cloud platform where new semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Effective web servers with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and SSD drives will guarantee the best possible performance of the file system and of any website hosted on our end. We use the same setup for storing not just the files that you upload, but also any databases which you create and e-mails that you receive, which raises the quality of our service significantly over what you are able to find on the market. Not only will there be no limitation to the number of files and e-mails you could have at any moment, but you shall also have 4 browsable backups of all of your content each day and the backup generation will not influence the web server performance. Providing such a number of backups is a result of the significantly better data compression rates the ZFS system delivers. Because all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup hosting server within seconds if there is an issue with any server and the content on it will be the latest one, so you will never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any content.
