No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a web hosting account from our company, you won't have to worry about your data ever getting damaged. We can ensure that as our cloud hosting platform uses the reliable ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. Any info that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on many different SSDs. All of the file systems synchronize the files between the different drives using such a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file won't get corrupted. This could occur throughout the writing process on any drive and afterwards a bad copy may be copied on the rest of the drives. What is different on our platform is that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all the drives right away and when a corrupted file is located, it's replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. That way, your information will remain intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have avoided any risk of files getting corrupted silently since the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created employ a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its basic advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint which is checked in real time. Since we keep all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive corresponds to the one on the other drives and the one it has stored. When there is a mismatch, the corrupted copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and because it happens right away, there is no chance that a corrupted copy could remain on our hosting servers or that it could be copied to the other hard drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this kind of checks and what's more, even during a file system check following a sudden power loss, none of them will identify silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS doesn't crash after a power failure and the regular checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check unnecessary.
