No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud web hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting providers, including our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. In case a file on a drive gets damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it's more than likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because alternative file systems don't feature special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the bad copy will be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. Since this happens in real time, there's no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you won't have to worry about silent file corruption as we use ZFS - an advanced file system which monitors all the files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your website hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synced between multiple SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and in case it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens in real time, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, all the other file systems perform checks only after a system breakdown, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they cannot detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy could be replicated on the other disks as well and you could lose precious data. As this is not the case with ZFS, we warrant the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
