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 guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. Most of the internet hosting providers, like our firm, use multiple HDDs to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive gets damaged for whatever reason, yet, it is likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems don't include special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy shall be swapped with a good one from another disk drive. Because this happens right away, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, you will not have to worry about silent data corruption because we use ZFS - a high level file system which keeps track of all files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. This file will be synced between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and when it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This is done in real time, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any moment. In contrast, alternative file systems execute checks only after a system breakdown, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they will not detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you can lose precious info. As this is not the case with ZFS, we guarantee the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
