No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we make use of on our cloud platform. Most of the hosting suppliers, including our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same data is synchronized between the drives all of the time. If a file on a drive is corrupted for some reason, however, it is very likely that it will be copied on the other drives since other file systems do not include special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy shall be swapped with a good one from a different drive. As this happens instantly, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not experience any kind of silent data corruption issues if you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions because the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to make sure that all the files are undamaged all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is assigned to each and every file stored on a server. Since we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. In case it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the rest of the hard drives. ZFS is the only file system out there which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that cannot detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
