No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
We have dealt with the problem of silent data corruption on our shared web hosting servers by using the state-of-the-art Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems as it is the only one on the market that checks all the files immediately by using a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each 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 analyzes the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from some other 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 perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud website hosting platform is that we use multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your data will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, you will not have to be concerned about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system that keeps track of all files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synchronized between a couple 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 when it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done right away, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, alternative file systems perform checks after a system breakdown, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they will not detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy may be replicated on the other drives as well and you may lose critical information. Because this isn't the case with ZFS, we warrant the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
