No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
We have dealt with the issue of silent data corruption on our cloud hosting servers by using the state-of-the-art Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems because it is the only one out there that checks all the files instantly by employing a checksum - a digital identifier which is unique for each file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and continually synchronized between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly compares the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced instantly 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 copied on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud hosting platform is that we work with multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your Internet sites with us, your info will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shielded from silent data corruption as all of our storage servers use the effective ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, to ensure the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it will be saved on several redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disk drives. All of the copies of a specific file will feature the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, so if it discovers a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's a sudden power loss, the data on the servers won't become corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some breakdown, lengthening the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
