No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
We've resolved the matter of silent data corruption on all of our cloud hosting servers by using the modern Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems because it is the only one on the market which checks all of the files in real time by using a checksum - a digital identifier which is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced quickly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated on the remaining SSDs. ZFS needs lots of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shielded from silent data corruption because all of our storage servers work with the efficient ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to verify the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it will be kept on several redundant drives being employed in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same on all disks. All copies of a given file will have the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates quickly, so if it discovers a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will swap that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is an unforeseen power loss, the data on the servers won't get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some malfunction, extending the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
