No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
We've dealt with the matter of silent data corruption on our cloud hosting servers by using the cutting-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems because it is the only one out there that checks all files right away 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 regularly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced immediately with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a bad file may remain or may be copied on the remaining SSDs. ZFS needs plenty of physical memory to execute the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud website hosting platform is that we work with multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't need to deal with any silent data corruption issues whatsoever should you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to guarantee that all the files are undamaged all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file saved on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. In case 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 probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard drives. ZFS is the sole file system you will find that uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems which are not able to detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across drives.
