ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that offers top performance for websites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each file includes a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for some reason on one of the hard drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file saved on a hosting server is guaranteed constantly. ZFS also operates considerably faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be created considerably quicker and without slowing down the general performance of the entire hosting server. In addition, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction that may cause problems at some point, especially for script apps that have a lot of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it's not a surprise that we have chose to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform where your new cloud hosting account shall be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible as the other well-known control panels cannot run on ZFS. The result of our work is a much faster and effective hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered machines that include huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives which will provide the best possible speed for your sites. We also take full advantage of the faster backup generation that ZFS provides, so we shall keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails every day without lowering the performance of the hosting servers - something which companies using other file systems can't provide. Each hosting server from the storage clusters also features a backup machine and the ZFS file system allows us to have the newest copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. That way, if a server fails, we can switch to its backup within seconds, so your Internet sites shall be operational at all times and you shall never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your server.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems out there, we've made a decision to use it on all our hosting servers that are part of the advanced cloud platform where new semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Potent hosting servers with hundreds of gigabytes of physical memory and solid state drives will ensure the very 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 you upload, but also any databases which you make and email messages which you receive, which boosts the quality of our service tremendously over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no restriction to the number of files and e-mail messages that you can have at any given time, but you'll also have 4 browsable backups of all your content every day and the backup generation will not impact the server efficiency. Providing such a number of backups is because of the superior data compression rates that the ZFS system provides. Due to the fact that all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup server in seconds if there is an issue with any machine and the data on it will be the latest one, so you'll never have to think about the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any data.
