No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared website hosting account with our firm, you don't need to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that because our cloud hosting platform works with the leading-edge ZFS file system. The aforementioned is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each and every file. All of the information that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on a large number of SSD drives. All the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives with this type of a setup, but there is no real guarantee that a file won't be corrupted. This can occur during the writing process on each drive and then a bad copy can be copied on all other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS compares the checksums of all files on all drives immediately and if a corrupted file is located, it is replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. That way, your data will continue to be unharmed no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've avoided any risk of files getting corrupted silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created use a powerful file system called ZFS. Its key advantage over various other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each and every file - a digital fingerprint that is checked in real time. As we keep all content on numerous SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the remaining drives and the one it has saved. In case there is a mismatch, the bad copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and since it happens right away, there is no chance that a corrupted copy could remain on our web hosting servers or that it could be duplicated to the other hard disks in the RAID. None of the other file systems include this kind of checks and in addition, even during a file system check right after an unexpected power loss, none of them can detect silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS doesn't crash after a power failure and the continual checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check unneeded.
