No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. The majority of hosting providers, including our company, use multiple HDDs to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same data is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive becomes damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it's likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because other file systems don't have special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every 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 shall be substituted with a good one from another hard disk drive. As this happens instantly, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption as all of our storage servers employ the innovative ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to verify the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several redundant drives in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disk drives. All the copies of a specific file will feature the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies right away, so if it discovers a mismatch, which would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll swap that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is an unexpected power failure, the data on the servers will not be corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some breakdown, extending the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
