No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our company, you do not need to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that as our cloud hosting platform works with the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The aforementioned is the only file system which works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. Any kind of 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 separate drives using such a setup, but there's no real warranty that a file won't be corrupted. This could happen during the writing process on each drive and after that a corrupted copy may be copied on the rest of the drives. What makes the difference on our platform is that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all of the drives live and in the event that a corrupted file is found, it is substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. In this way, your info will continue to be intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won't have to be concerned about silent file corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system that monitors all files in real time. Whenever 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 synced between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and if it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done immediately, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. In comparison, other file systems perform checks after a system malfunction, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they are unable to detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the rest of the drives as well and you could lose precious information. Because this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to warrant the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
