No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of hosting suppliers, including our company, use multiple hard disks to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive becomes damaged for reasons unknown, however, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives since alternative file systems do not include special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy will be replaced with a good one from a different disk drive. Because this happens right away, there's no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all our storage servers make use of the reliable ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it uses checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to ensure the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on several redundant drives operating in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same on all drives. All the copies of a particular file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies quickly, and if it identifies a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll substitute that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's an unforeseen blackout, the data on the servers will not get corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some malfunction, extending the time needed for the server to get back online. ZFS is the sole file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
