No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you don't need to worry about any of your data ever getting corrupted. We can guarantee that because our cloud hosting platform uses the leading-edge ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. Any information that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many SSDs. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using such a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file will not be corrupted. This could happen throughout the writing process on any drive and afterwards a damaged copy may be copied on the other drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS analyzes the checksums of all files on all of the drives immediately and in case a corrupted file is found, it's substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. This way, your info will remain undamaged no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will not have to be concerned about silent file corruption since we use ZFS - a high level file system which checks all of the files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. This file will be synced between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and when it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This happens right away, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, other file systems perform checks after a system failure, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the other drives as well and you could lose crucial information. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
