No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from 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 employs the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each and every file. All the information that you upload will be kept in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many different SSD drives. Many file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using this kind of a setup, but there is no real guarantee that a file won't be corrupted. This may happen during the writing process on each drive and then a corrupted copy may be copied on all other drives. What makes the difference on our platform is that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all the drives instantly and in the event that a corrupted file is found, it is replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. By doing this, your data will remain unharmed no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't experience any silent data corruption issues in case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to ensure that all of your files are intact at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is assigned to each and every file saved on a server. As we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, 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 right away. 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 right away, avoiding any probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the other drives. ZFS is the only file system you can find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that are not able to identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across drives.
