No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared web hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. Most of the internet hosting providers, including our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same information is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive becomes corrupted for reasons unknown, however, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives since alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy will be substituted with a good one from another disk drive. Since 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
In case you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you won't need to worry about silent file corruption because we use ZFS - an advanced file system which monitors all files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synchronized between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and when it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens right away, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. In comparison, alternative file systems carry out checks only after a system failure, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy can be replicated on the other disks as well and you can lose important information. Because this is not the case with ZFS, we can warrant the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
