No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new web hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we make use of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of web hosting service providers, including our company, use multiple hard disk drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the exact same info is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive is damaged for some reason, yet, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems do not have special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy will be substituted with a good one from another disk drive. Because this happens in real time, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have avoided any chance of files getting damaged silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created employ a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its key advantage over alternative file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for every single file - a digital fingerprint that's checked in real time. As we save all content on numerous SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive corresponds to the one on the rest of the drives and the one it has stored. If there's a mismatch, the bad copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and since this happens right away, there is no chance that a damaged copy could remain on our servers or that it can be copied to the other hard disks in the RAID. None of the other file systems work with such checks and in addition, even during a file system check following a sudden power failure, none of them can detect silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS doesn't crash after a power failure and the continual checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check obsolete.
