No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you don't have to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that as our cloud hosting platform employs the amazing ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. Any info that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on multiple SSDs. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using this kind of a setup, but there's no real guarantee that a file won't get corrupted. This may occur during the writing process on each drive and after that a damaged copy can be copied on all other drives. What makes the difference on our platform is that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all drives live and in the event that a corrupted file is found, it is replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. By doing this, your info will stay intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not have to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans as the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to guarantee that all of your files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file saved on a server. Since we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. If it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any probability of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the other hard disks. ZFS is the sole file system out there which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that cannot detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
