No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
We've resolved the issue of silent data corruption on our web hosting servers by using the modern 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 files in real time by using a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is 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 website hosting platform is that we use multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your sites with us, your information will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not encounter any silent data corruption issues whatsoever should you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to make sure that all files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file stored on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. In case it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy without delay, avoiding any probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the other drives. ZFS is the only file system you will find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which are unable to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
