No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud website hosting account with our firm, you won't have to worry about any of your data ever getting damaged. We can guarantee that because our cloud hosting platform uses the advanced ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. All the data that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many SSDs. All file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using such a setup, but there's no real guarantee that a file won't get corrupted. This may occur during the writing process on any drive and then a corrupted copy can be copied on the other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS compares the checksums of all files on all of the drives instantly and when a corrupted file is located, it is substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. In this way, your info will remain intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you won't need to worry about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system which 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. This file will be synced between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and if it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens instantly, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any time. In contrast, all the other file systems carry out checks after a system breakdown, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they won't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy could be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you could lose critical data. As this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to warrant the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
