No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
We've tackled the matter of silent data corruption on all our cloud web hosting servers by using the state-of-the-art Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems because it is the only one out there which checks all the files immediately by using a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and regularly synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced quickly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be copied on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory in order to execute 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 websites with us, your information will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be shielded from silent data corruption as all our storage servers use the efficient ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to ensure the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be placed on several redundant drives operating in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same on all drives. All copies of a given file will feature the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, so if it discovers a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will substitute that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is a sudden power loss, the data on the servers won't become corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some breakdown, prolonging the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system that can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
