No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account with our firm, you do not need to worry about your data ever getting damaged. We can ensure that as our cloud hosting platform uses the amazing ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. Any kind of info that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on numerous SSD drives. All the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives using this kind of a setup, but there's no real guarantee that a file won't get corrupted. This could happen during the writing process on each drive and after that a corrupted copy may be copied on all other drives. What is different on our platform is the fact that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all of the drives immediately and when a corrupted file is located, it's replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. That way, your information will continue to be undamaged no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have avoided any possibility of files getting damaged silently because the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created employ a powerful file system named ZFS. Its key advantage over various other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint that is checked in real time. Since we keep all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the rest of the drives and the one it has stored. When there's a mismatch, the damaged copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and considering that this happens in real time, there is no chance that a damaged copy can remain on our servers or that it could be copied to the other drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this kind of checks and what is more, even during a file system check following a sudden power loss, none of them can find silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS won't crash after a blackout and the continual checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check obsolete.
