No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
We've resolved the issue of silent data corruption on all our cloud website hosting servers by using the leading-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems as it is the only one in existence which checks all of the files right away by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and constantly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly analyzes the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced right away with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a bad file may remain or may be duplicated on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS needs a lot of physical memory in order to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your sites with us, your info will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you won't need to be concerned about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - an advanced file system that keeps track of all the files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synced between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and when it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done instantly, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. By comparison, alternative file systems carry out checks only after a system malfunction, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they are unable to detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy may be replicated on the other drives as well and you may lose important info. Since this isn't the case with ZFS, we guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
