No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new website hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we work with on our cloud platform. Most hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical info is synchronized between the drives at all times. In case a file on a drive is corrupted for reasons unknown, however, it's likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as other file systems do not include special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy shall be replaced with a good one from a different disk drive. Since this happens in real time, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you will not need to worry about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system which monitors all the files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synced between several SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all the copies on the different drives and if it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This happens right away, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. In contrast, alternative file systems perform checks after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy could be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you can lose crucial data. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we warrant the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
