No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new web hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. Most web hosting suppliers, including our firm, use multiple hard drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same information is synchronized between the drives at all times. When a file on a drive becomes corrupted for whatever reason, yet, it's very likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since other file systems do not offer special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum won't 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. Due to the fact that this happens right away, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't encounter any silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you buy one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to guarantee that all files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is allotted to each and every file saved on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all of the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. If it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any probability of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard drives. ZFS is the only file system you will find that uses checksums, which makes it much more dependable than other file systems that are not able to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
