No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with our firm, you don't need to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform works with the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The aforementioned is the only file system which works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. All info that you upload will be kept in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many different SSDs. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives with this type of a setup, but there's no real guarantee that a file won't get corrupted. This can occur during the writing process on any drive and then a bad copy may be copied on all other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all drives live and in the event that a corrupted file is identified, it is substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. This way, your information will continue to be undamaged no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've avoided any risk of files getting damaged silently as the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created employ a powerful file system named ZFS. Its main advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each and every file - a digital fingerprint which is checked in real time. As we store all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive corresponds to the one on the other drives and the one it has stored. In the event that there's a mismatch, the damaged copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and because it happens right away, there is no chance that a damaged copy can remain on our hosting servers or that it could be copied to the other hard disks in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this type of checks and what is more, even during a file system check right after an unexpected power loss, none of them will find silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS does not crash after a power loss and the regular checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check obsolete.
