No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of web hosting service providers, including our company, use multiple hard disks to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same data is synchronized between the drives at all times. When 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 other file systems don't have special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from a different drive. Since this happens in real time, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you get one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you will not have to worry about silent data corruption because we use ZFS - a high level file system that keeps track of all files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synced between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all the copies on the different drives and when it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This is done in real time, so there will be no threat for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, other file systems execute 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 bad copy can be replicated on the other drives as well and you may lose crucial data. Because this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of each and every file you upload no matter what.
