No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
We've tackled the issue of silent data corruption on all of our cloud website hosting servers by using the hi-tech Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems because it is the only one in existence that checks all the files immediately by employing a checksum - a digital identifier which is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated on the other SSDs. ZFS needs a lot of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud web hosting platform is that we work with multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your websites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption as all of our storage servers employ the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to guarantee the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be saved on several redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disk drives. All copies of a given file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, so if it identifies a mismatch, which would indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it will replace that file with a good copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's an unexpected power failure, the data on the servers will not become corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform after some malfunction, lengthening the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
