ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system which provides better performance for web sites and online programs. One of its major advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - each and every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard drives functioning together in a RAID. If any file is damaged for whatever reason on one of the hard drives, it's restored from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a web server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also works faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be produced considerably faster 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 could be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some restriction which might cause problems sooner or later, especially for script applications which have a large number of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Cloud Web Hosting
Considering all of the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it isn't a surprise that we have made a decision to use it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new cloud web hosting account shall be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia Control Panel make this possible as the other well-known control panels can't operate on ZFS. The result of our work is a considerably faster and efficient hosting service - we'll store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered machines which include huge amounts of RAM and SSD drives that will offer the best possible speed for your Internet sites. We also leverage the faster backup generation that ZFS provides, so we will keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails every single day without compromising the performance of the web servers - something that firms using other file systems cannot provide. Every hosting server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the most recent copy of your content on both places - a good copy, needless to say. That way, if a web server fails, we could switch to its backup within seconds, so your sites shall be functioning at all times and you will never have to stress about the integrity of your files or about the balance of your server.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems available on the market, we've decided to use it on all our servers which are a part of the advanced cloud platform in which new semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created. Highly effective machines with hundreds of gbs of physical memory and SSD drives shall guarantee 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 just the files which you upload, but also any databases that you build and emails which you receive, which improves the quality of our service noticeably over what you'll be able to find on the market. Not only will there be no limit to the number of files and e-mails that you can have at one time, but you will also have four browsable backups of all of your content each day and the backup generation won't influence the hosting server performance. Offering such a number of backups is because of the significantly better data compression rates the ZFS system provides. Because all files are checked in real time, we could also switch to a backup server within a few moments if there is an issue with any server and the data on it shall be the latest one, so you won't ever need to consider the reliability of your hosting service or worry about losing any data.
