No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
We have resolved the problem of silent data corruption on all our shared hosting servers by using the modern Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems as it is the only one out there which checks all files in real time by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly compares the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced promptly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be copied on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS needs lots of physical memory in order to execute the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud web hosting platform is that we work with multiple powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be resistant to silent data corruption since all of our storage servers use the effective 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 employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same on all drives. All copies of a specific file will feature the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies right away, so if it identifies a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is an unexpected power loss, 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 following some failure, extending the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the sole file system that can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
