No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Hosting
We've dealt with the matter of silent data corruption on all our hosting servers by using the advanced Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems as it is the only one in existence that checks all the files immediately by using a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and constantly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and in case any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced quickly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a corrupted file may remain or may be duplicated on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud hosting platform is that we take advantage of multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your sites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be protected against silent data corruption as all of our storage servers work with the efficient ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to verify the integrity of every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be placed on a couple of redundant drives working in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disk drives. All the copies of a particular file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates quickly, and if it registers a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll substitute that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's an unforeseen power failure, the data on the servers won't become corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some breakdown, extending the time needed for the server to get back online. ZFS is the only file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
