No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
We've tackled the matter of silent data corruption on all our shared website hosting servers by using the amazing Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems because it is the only one out there that checks all files in real time by employing 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 constantly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly compares the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced immediately with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be duplicated on the other SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory to execute the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud web hosting platform is that we take advantage of 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
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all our storage servers employ the efficient ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to verify the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be placed on several redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disks. All copies of a particular file will have the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, so if it finds a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll substitute that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's an unexpected power loss, the data on the servers won't get corrupted and there will not 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 return online. ZFS is the sole file system that can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
