No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you don't have to worry about any of your data ever getting damaged. We can guarantee that because our cloud hosting platform uses the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system that works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. All of the data that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on a large number of SSDs. All the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives using this type of a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file will not get corrupted. This could occur throughout the writing process on any drive and after that a damaged copy may be copied on the other drives. What makes the difference on our platform is that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all drives immediately and in case a corrupted file is located, it is substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. By doing this, your info will continue to be unharmed no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not encounter any silent data corruption issues should you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions as the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to ensure that all of the files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file kept on a server. Since we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all of the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. When it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy without delay, avoiding any probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the rest of the hard drives. ZFS is the only file system you can get that uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems which are not able to identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across drives.
