No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The majority of web hosting providers, including our firm, use multiple hard disk drives to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same data is synchronized between the drives at all times. When a file on a drive gets corrupted for some reason, yet, it's likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems don't feature special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different disk drive. As this happens in real time, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be shielded from silent data corruption as all our storage servers employ the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the latter 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 saved on several redundant drives in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disk drives. All copies of a particular file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates quickly, so if it finds a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it will swap that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's a sudden power loss, the data on the servers will not get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some malfunction, extending the time needed for the server to get back online. ZFS is the file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
