No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you do not need to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that since our cloud hosting platform employs the revolutionary ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each and every file. Any kind of information that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on multiple SSDs. All the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives with this kind of a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file will not get corrupted. This can happen at the time of the writing process on each drive and after that a damaged copy can be copied on all other drives. What is different on our platform is the fact that ZFS compares the checksums of all files on all of the drives in real time and if a corrupted file is found, it is swapped with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. This way, your info will continue to be undamaged no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will not have to worry about silent data corruption since we use ZFS - an advanced file system that keeps track of all the files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synced between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the 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 instantly, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any time. In contrast, all the other file systems carry out checks only after a system failure, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they are unable to detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the remaining disks as well and you can lose important info. Because this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
