No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new web hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting service providers, like our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the same data is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive becomes damaged for some reason, yet, it is more than likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because other file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy will be swapped with a good one from a different drive. Because this happens in real time, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have avoided any probability of files getting corrupted silently because the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created employ a powerful file system named ZFS. Its key advantage over various other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint that's checked in real time. As we store all content on a number of SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the other drives and the one it has stored. If there is a mismatch, the damaged copy is replaced with a good one from one of the other drives and since this happens in real time, there is no chance that a corrupted copy could remain on our website hosting servers or that it could be duplicated to the other drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems work with this type of checks and furthermore, even during a file system check following an unexpected power failure, none of them will detect silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS will not crash after a blackout and the continual checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check obsolete.
