No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared website hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. The majority of internet hosting service providers, like our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same info is synchronized between the drives at all times. In case a file on a drive becomes damaged for whatever reason, however, it is more than likely that it will be copied on the other drives because other file systems don't feature special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy shall be swapped with a good one from a different hard disk. Due to the fact that this happens in real time, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, you won't need to worry about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - an advanced file system that keeps track of all the files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synced between a couple of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and when it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This is done in real time, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any time. In comparison, all of the other file systems perform checks after a system malfunction, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they will not detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the remaining disks as well and you can lose precious data. As this is not the case with ZFS, we can guarantee the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
