No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. Most internet hosting service providers, like our firm, use multiple HDDs 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 is damaged for whatever reason, yet, it is likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives as other file systems do not feature special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy shall be replaced with a good one from another hard drive. Because this happens right away, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all our storage servers employ the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to verify the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it will be placed on a couple of redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same on all 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 detects a mismatch, which would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll swap that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is a sudden 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 after some failure, extending the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system which can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
