The ZFS Advantage

ZFS tiered caching makes fetching reads more efficient. Frequently used data is accessible via RAM, while less frequently used data is stored on the device’s SSDs and HDDs, respectively.

Designed to protect itself, ZFS supports RAID-Z configuration and back-up to automatically detect silent data corruption and repair data faster than other file systems.

ZFS Copy-on-write (COW) technology instantly duplicates writes without impeding write speed.
