No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet 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 employs the reliable ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system that works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. All of the info that you upload will be kept in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on multiple SSD drives. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using this type of a setup, but there's no real warranty that a file will not get corrupted. This may occur at the time of the writing process on each drive and afterwards a damaged copy can be copied on the rest of the drives. What makes the difference on our platform is the fact that ZFS compares the checksums of all files on all the drives in real time and in the event that a corrupted file is located, it's swapped with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. In this way, your data will stay intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have avoided any possibility of files getting damaged silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created employ a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each and every file - a digital fingerprint that is checked in real time. As we save all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the remaining drives and the one it has stored. In case there is a mismatch, the corrupted copy is replaced with a good one from one of the other drives and since it happens instantly, there's no chance that a damaged copy could remain on our website hosting servers or that it can be duplicated to the other drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems employ this kind of checks and what is more, even during a file system check right after a sudden power failure, none of them can identify silently corrupted files. In contrast, ZFS doesn't crash after a blackout and the regular checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check obsolete.
