No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting service providers, like our company, use multiple hard disk drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, the exact same information is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive is damaged for some reason, however, it's likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the damaged copy will be replaced with a good one from another hard disk. Due to the fact that this happens right away, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shielded from silent data corruption as all our storage servers work with the reliable ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it uses 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 several redundant drives in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disks. All copies of a particular file will have the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates right away, and if it discovers a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will substitute that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's a sudden power loss, the data on the servers won't get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some breakdown, lengthening the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the sole file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
