No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
We have dealt with the problem of silent data corruption on our shared website hosting servers by using the state-of-the-art Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems since it is the only one on the market that checks all the files instantly by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly analyzes the checksum of all files and when any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced promptly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires plenty of physical memory in order to carry out the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud web hosting platform is that we take advantage of multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not need to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues in case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to make sure that all the files are intact at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is allotted to each and every file kept on a server. Because we store all content on a number of 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 right away. In case 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 right away, avoiding any possibility of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard disks. ZFS is the only file system out there that uses checksums, which makes it much more dependable than other file systems which are unable to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
