No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
We've tackled the problem of silent data corruption on all our shared web hosting servers by using the amazing Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is superior to other file systems since it is the only one on the market which checks all files instantly by using a checksum - a digital identifier which is unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly compares the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced right away with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated 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 website hosting platform is that we work with multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your sites with us, your information will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won't have to be concerned about silent file corruption as we use ZFS - an advanced file system that checks all the files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. This file will be synchronized between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and if it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done right away, so there will be no threat for any part of your content at any moment. In contrast, all the other file systems carry out checks after a system failure, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy could be replicated on the other drives as well and you could lose critical information. Because this is not the case with ZFS, we can guarantee the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
