No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared web hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we make use of on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting providers, including our company, use multiple hard disks to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical info is synchronized between the drives all the time. In case a file on a drive becomes damaged for whatever reason, however, it is likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because alternative file systems don't have special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for 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 damaged copy will be substituted with a good one from a different drive. Because this happens immediately, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've avoided any chance of files getting damaged silently as the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created use a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each and every file - a digital fingerprint that's checked in real time. As we save all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the rest of the drives and the one it has stored. In case there's a mismatch, the bad copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and considering that this happens in real time, there's no chance that a corrupted copy can remain on our website hosting servers or that it can be copied to the other hard drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems employ this type of checks and what's more, even during a file system check following an unexpected blackout, none of them will detect silently corrupted files. In contrast, ZFS will not crash after an electrical power failure and the constant checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check obsolete.
