No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we make use of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting suppliers, including our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the same info is synchronized between the drives at all times. In case a file on a drive gets damaged for whatever reason, yet, it's more than likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems do not feature special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy will be swapped with a good one from another hard disk. As this happens instantly, there's no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't experience any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever if you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages because the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to guarantee that all the files are undamaged at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is assigned to each and every file stored on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all of the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. In the event that it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the remaining drives. ZFS is the sole file system you can find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that cannot identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across drives.
