No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
We've dealt with the problem of silent data corruption on our shared website hosting servers by using the advanced Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems since it is the only one out there that checks all of the files immediately by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several SSD drives and constantly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and if any file is detected as corrupted, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated on the other SSDs. ZFS needs a lot of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your Internet sites with us, your data will be intact no matter what.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all our storage servers employ the advanced ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to verify the integrity of every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be kept on a couple of redundant drives being employed in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same on all drives. All of the copies of a specific file will feature the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies quickly, and if it discovers a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it will replace that file with a good copy from one of the other drives. Even if there's an unforeseen power failure, the data on the servers won't be corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform after some failure, prolonging the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
