No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud web hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. The majority of hosting service providers, including our company, use multiple hard disk drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the exact same data is synchronized between the drives all the time. When a file on a drive becomes damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it is likely that it will be copied on the other drives because alternative file systems don't feature special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from a different hard drive. Since this happens instantly, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not encounter any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to make sure that all the files are intact at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is allotted to each and every file stored on a server. As we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. If it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy without delay, avoiding any possibility of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard disks. ZFS is the sole file system you can find which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that are not able to identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
