No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
We have dealt with the issue of silent data corruption on all our shared website hosting servers by using the advanced Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems as it is the only one in existence that checks all files in real time by using a checksum - a digital identifier that is unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and continually synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly analyzes the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as damaged, it's replaced promptly 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 copied on the other SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory in order to carry out the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your websites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not experience any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever should you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to guarantee that all files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is assigned to each and every file stored on a server. Since we store all content on multiple drives at the same time, the same file has the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. If it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the other drives. ZFS is the sole file system you can get that uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that cannot detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
