No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a web hosting account with our company, you don't have to worry about your data ever getting damaged. We can guarantee that because our cloud hosting platform employs the leading-edge ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. All the data that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on numerous SSDs. All the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives using this kind of a setup, but there's no real guarantee that a file will not be corrupted. This may occur throughout the writing process on each drive and afterwards a bad copy can be copied on the rest of the drives. What makes the difference on our platform is the fact that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all the drives instantly and if a corrupted file is discovered, it's substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. This way, your information will remain intact no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will not need to worry about silent file corruption since we use ZFS - an advanced file system which checks all of 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. This file will be synchronized between a number of 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 in case it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done instantly, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any moment. In comparison, other file systems execute checks after a system failure, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they cannot detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the remaining disks as well and you can lose crucial information. Because this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to warrant the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
