ZFS, which means Z File System, is a progressive file system that provides better performance for Internet sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all the files between the different hard drives operating together in a RAID. If any file is corrupted for some reason on one of the drives, it is repaired from another drive with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file stored on a server is ensured at all times. ZFS also operates faster than other file systems, which allows backups to be generated much faster and without slowing down the performance of the whole server. Also, ZFS doesn't have a restriction for the total number of files that can be stored on a web server while all other file systems have some limit that might cause problems eventually, especially for script apps that have a lot of files.
