No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account with our firm, you don't have to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform employs the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system that works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. All of the info that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many different SSDs. Many file systems synchronize the files between the different drives with such a setup, but there is no real guarantee that a file won't be corrupted. This may happen at the time of the writing process on any drive and afterwards a damaged copy can be copied on the other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all drives in real time and in case a corrupted file is identified, it is swapped with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. That way, your data will continue to be intact no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues if you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans since the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to guarantee that all of the files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is allotted to each and every file stored on a server. Because we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. In the event that 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 possibility of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining drives. ZFS is the only file system available on the market which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that are not able to identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
