The Z File System, or ZFS, is an innovative file system which is a lot better than any other file system out there. It's really reliable and provides the absolute best performance for the hosting platforms which employ it. What makes it different is that it compares the so-called checksum of all the files on the hard drives that comprise a RAID array in real time and if any file is corrupted, it is repaired on the spot. In simple terms, the same site files are located on two or more drives and if there is a problem with a file on one hard drive, a good copy is employed from the other drive to restore that file. In contrast, none of the other widespread file systems features checksums. ZFS is also considerably quicker and its performance is not impacted by the number of files stored on the web servers. The bigger speeds also allow backups to be generated quicker and more often without affecting the efficiency of the system.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting
solutions which we offer are developed on our ZFS-powered cloud platform and if you host your sites with our company, you will enjoy all the advantages of this file system. All servers which are part of our cluster system employ ZFS and include SSD drives and large amounts of RAM. Therefore, your websites shall operate many times more quickly than if they were running on a hosting server with the normal setup which you will find with other web hosting companies. For better performance, we use the ZFS file system on all clusters - not simply the ones where your files are saved, but also those that deal with the databases and the emails. The file system provides much better loading speeds and guarantees the integrity of your Internet site since if a production server fails, we can switch to a backup one and it will have the latest version of your website or the latest email messages which you have received. The faster backup speeds also allow us to make 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 reliable service.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we've made a decision to employ it on all our hosting servers that are part of the state-of-the-art cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. Powerful machines with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives will ensure 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 only the files that you upload, but any databases that you build and e-mails that you receive, which raises the quality of our service considerably over what you could find on the market. Not only will there be no restriction to the number of files and email messages you could have at any given time, but you'll also have 4 browsable backups of all of your content on a daily basis and the backup generation will not impact the hosting server efficiency. Offering such a number of backups is due to the superior data compression rates the ZFS system provides. As all files are checked out in real time, we could also switch to a backup machine in seconds if there is a problem with any server and the information on it will be the latest one, so you'll never have to consider the reliability of your hosting service or stress about losing any content.
