No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. The majority of internet hosting suppliers, like our firm, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the same information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive becomes damaged for some reason, however, it's very likely that it will be copied on the other drives since other file systems do not include special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. Due to the fact that this happens immediately, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've avoided any risk of files getting damaged silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created use a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its basic advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint that is checked in real time. Since we save all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the remaining drives and the one it has saved. In case there is a mismatch, the corrupted copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and because this happens right away, there is no chance that a damaged copy could remain on our web hosting servers or that it could be duplicated to the other hard drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems work with this type of checks and what's more, even during a file system check after an unexpected blackout, none of them can find silently corrupted files. In contrast, ZFS will not crash after an electrical power failure and the constant checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check unnecessary.
