No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system which we take advantage of on our cloud platform. Most web hosting suppliers, like our firm, use multiple hard disk drives to store content and because the drives work in a RAID, the same data is synchronized between the drives all the time. In case a file on a drive becomes corrupted for whatever reason, however, it's likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because other file systems don't include special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different hard disk. Because this happens right away, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not experience any kind of silent data corruption issues should you acquire 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 in order to make sure that all files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is given to each and every file stored on a server. Since we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. In the event that 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 without delay, avoiding any possibility of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the rest of the drives. ZFS is the only file system out there that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that are unable to detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
