No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared web hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The majority of web hosting suppliers, including our firm, use multiple HDDs to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. If a file on a drive is damaged for whatever reason, yet, it's likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems do not have special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy shall be swapped with a good one from a different hard drive. As this happens instantly, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all our storage servers make use of the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to verify the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be kept on a couple of redundant drives being employed in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disks. All of the copies of a given file will feature the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies in real time, so if it registers a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it will substitute that file with a good copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's an unforeseen power loss, the data on the servers won't get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some breakdown, extending the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
