No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
We have tackled the matter of silent data corruption on all of our cloud web hosting servers by using the modern Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems because it is the only one out there that checks all the files in real time by using a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly compares the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be duplicated on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires plenty of physical memory in order to execute the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud website hosting platform is that we work with multiple powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you won't need to worry about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - a high level file system which keeps track of all the files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synchronized between a couple of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and when it detects a corrupted 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 time. In comparison, alternative file systems perform checks after a system malfunction, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they are unable to detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy may be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you can lose critical info. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
