No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you don't need to worry about any of your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform uses the reliable ZFS file system. The aforementioned is the only file system that works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. Any data that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on a large number of SSD drives. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives using such a setup, but there's no real warranty that a file will not get corrupted. This may occur throughout the writing process on any drive and afterwards a corrupted copy can be copied on the rest of the drives. What is different on our platform is the fact that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all drives right away and when a corrupted file is found, it's replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. This way, your data will continue to be undamaged no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you won't need to be concerned about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - a high level file system which checks all of the files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your web hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synchronized between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all the copies on the different drives and if it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens instantly, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. By comparison, all the other file systems execute checks after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they won't detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy can be replicated on the other disks as well and you may lose important info. Because this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to guarantee the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
