No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new web hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. The majority of internet hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical data is synchronized between the drives all the time. In case a file on a drive is corrupted for reasons unknown, yet, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems don't offer special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. If a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the damaged copy will be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. Since this happens immediately, there's no risk for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption as all 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 every single file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be placed on a couple of redundant drives being employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disk drives. All of the copies of a particular file will feature the same checksum on all drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates quickly, and if it finds a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll swap that file with a good copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is an unexpected power loss, the data on the servers won't get corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some breakdown, lengthening the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system that can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
