No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Website Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud website hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we make use of on our cloud platform. The majority of web hosting providers, including our firm, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, identical info is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive becomes corrupted for whatever reason, however, it's likely that it will be copied on the other drives as alternative file systems don't have special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy shall be swapped with a good one from another hard disk. Due to the fact that this happens in real time, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not experience any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server solutions as the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to ensure that all the files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is assigned to each and every file saved on a server. Since we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all of the 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 chance of the bad copy to be synchronized on the rest of the hard drives. ZFS is the only file system you can find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that cannot identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
