No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Hosting
In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our company, you do not need to worry about any of your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that because our cloud hosting platform employs the reliable ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. Any kind of info that you upload will be kept in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many SSD drives. All file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives with this type of a setup, but there's no real warranty that a file will not get corrupted. This may occur during the writing process on each drive and afterwards a damaged copy can be copied on all other drives. What makes the difference on our platform is that ZFS compares the checksums of all files on all drives live and if a corrupted file is located, it is substituted with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. This way, your info will stay unharmed no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not have to deal with any silent data corruption issues in case you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to ensure that all files are undamaged all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file kept on a server. As we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, the same file has the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. When it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any probability of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard disks. ZFS is the only file system out there that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which cannot detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
