No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
We have resolved the problem of silent data corruption on our cloud website hosting servers by using the advanced 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 immediately by using a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and continually synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced promptly 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 copied on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS requires lots of physical memory to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud hosting platform is that we take advantage of multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your sites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you won't need to worry about silent data corruption since we use ZFS - a high level file system which keeps track of all of the files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That 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 the copies on the different drives and in case it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This happens instantly, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, all of the other file systems carry out checks only after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they are unable to detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy may be replicated on the other disks as well and you could lose important info. As this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to warrant the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
