No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud web hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud platform. Most of the hosting providers, including our company, use multiple HDDs to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, the exact same info is synchronized between the drives all of the time. In case a file on a drive becomes corrupted for reasons unknown, yet, it is more than likely that it will be copied on the other drives since alternative file systems do not have special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from another drive. Because this happens right away, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, you won't have to be concerned about silent file corruption as we use ZFS - an advanced file system which keeps track of all files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synced between several SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all the 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 is done 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 carry out checks after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy can be replicated on the other disks as well and you can lose precious information. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
