No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
We've resolved the problem of silent data corruption on all of our website hosting servers by using the advanced Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems as it is the only one in existence that checks all the files in real time by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly examines the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as corrupted, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be duplicated on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory to perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud web hosting platform is that we work with multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your sites with us, your info will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not need to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever if you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions since the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to ensure that all files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file saved on a server. Because we store all content on a number of drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. If 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 corrupted copy to be synchronized on the rest of the drives. ZFS is the only file system you will find which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that are not able to detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across drives.
