No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
We have tackled the matter of silent data corruption on all our website hosting servers by using the modern Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems as it is the only one in existence that checks all of the files instantly by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and continually synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced immediately with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be copied on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires lots of physical memory in order to execute the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud web hosting platform is that we use multiple powerful servers working together. In case you host your websites with us, your data will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't experience any silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans because the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to guarantee that all of the files are undamaged all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is given to each and every file stored on a server. Because we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, 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 without delay, avoiding any possibility of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the other drives. ZFS is the only file system you can get which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems which cannot detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
