No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you don't need to worry about any of your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform uses the revolutionary ZFS file system. The aforementioned is the only file system that works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each and every file. All the data that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on multiple SSD drives. Many file systems synchronize the files between the different drives with this kind of a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file won't get corrupted. This can happen at the time of the writing process on any drive and then a corrupted copy may be copied on all other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all drives immediately and in case a corrupted file is discovered, it's replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. In this way, your information will remain undamaged no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will not need to worry about silent file corruption since we use ZFS - a high level file system that keeps track of all the 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. This file will be synced between a couple of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all the copies on the different drives and when 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 threat for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, all the other file systems execute checks only after a system failure, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they cannot detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy can be replicated on the other drives as well and you could lose important data. As this is not the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
