No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
We've tackled the matter of silent data corruption on all of our website hosting servers by using the leading-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems because it is the only one on the market that checks all of the files right away by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as corrupted, it's replaced immediately with a good copy from another 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 needs plenty of physical memory to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud website hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be protected against silent data corruption as all of our storage servers work with the advanced ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to verify the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be placed on several redundant drives working in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disk drives. All of the copies of a given file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates right away, so if it identifies a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is an unforeseen blackout, the data on the servers won't be corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform after some failure, extending the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
