No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new website hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting providers, like our company, use multiple HDDs to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same info is synchronized between the drives at all times. When a file on a drive gets damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it is very likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because other file systems do not include special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. As 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
We have avoided any risk of files getting corrupted silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created work with a powerful file system called ZFS. Its main advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for every single file - a digital fingerprint that is checked in real time. Since we store all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the remaining drives and the one it has saved. In the event that there's a mismatch, the bad copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and considering that this happens instantly, there's no chance that a damaged copy could remain on our website hosting servers or that it could be copied to the other drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this kind of checks and what is more, even during a file system check after a sudden power failure, none of them will discover silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS will not crash after a power failure and the continual checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check unnecessary.
