No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard disks to store content and because the drives work in a RAID, identical information is synchronized between the drives at all times. In case a file on a drive is damaged for whatever reason, yet, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from a different hard disk. Since this happens right away, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be shielded from silent data corruption since all of our storage servers employ the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to verify the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be placed on a couple of redundant drives operating in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disks. All of the copies of a given file will have the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, and if it detects a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is an unexpected power loss, the data on the servers will not get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform after some failure, prolonging the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
