No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
We've dealt with the issue of silent data corruption on our shared web hosting servers by using the leading-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems as it is the only one in existence that checks all of the files instantly by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synced between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly compares the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as corrupted, it is replaced immediately with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a bad file may remain or may be duplicated on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS needs plenty of physical memory to execute the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud website hosting platform is that we take advantage of multiple powerful servers working together. In case you host your websites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be protected against silent data corruption as all of our storage servers work with the innovative ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, to verify the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on a couple of redundant drives being employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same on all drives. All of the copies of a specific file will have the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates quickly, so if it registers a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will substitute that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is a sudden power failure, the data on the servers will not become corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform after some breakdown, extending the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
