No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
We've dealt with the issue of silent data corruption on our web 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 on the market that checks all the files instantly by employing a checksum - a digital identifier which is unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as corrupted, it's replaced immediately 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 duplicated on the other SSDs. ZFS needs plenty of physical memory in order to carry out the real-time checks and the advantage of our cloud website hosting platform is that we employ multiple powerful servers working together. If you host your Internet sites with us, your information will be undamaged no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shielded from silent data corruption because all our storage servers employ the innovative ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to guarantee the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be saved on several redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same on all disk drives. All the copies of a specific file will have the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates right away, and if it detects a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll swap that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's an unforeseen power failure, the data on the servers won't become corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform after some failure, lengthening the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the sole file system that can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
