No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud web hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. Most of the hosting suppliers, like our firm, use multiple hard disks to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive is damaged for some reason, yet, it is likely that it will be copied on the other drives since alternative file systems don't offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy will be replaced with a good one from a different hard disk drive. Due to the fact that this happens instantly, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will not have to worry about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - an advanced file system that keeps track of all of the files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synchronized between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and if it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens right away, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any moment. In comparison, all of the other file systems perform checks after a system failure, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the rest of the drives as well and you can lose crucial info. Since this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to guarantee the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
