No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
We've dealt with the matter of silent data corruption on all of our cloud web hosting servers by using the leading-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems since it is the only one on the market which checks all the files instantly by using 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 when any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced quickly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a bad file may remain or may be copied on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS needs lots of physical memory in order to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud web hosting platform is that we employ multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your websites with us, your data will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will not need to be concerned about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - a high level file system which monitors all of the files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your website 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 in case it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done right away, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any moment. By comparison, all of the other file systems carry out checks after a system failure, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they will not detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy may be replicated on the other disks as well and you can lose important information. As this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
