No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting providers, including our company, use multiple HDDs to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, identical information is synchronized between the drives at all times. In case a file on a drive is damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it's very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives since other file systems don't offer special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. If a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy will be substituted with a good one from another disk drive. Because 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
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be resistant to silent data corruption as all our storage servers work with the reliable ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, to guarantee the integrity of every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on a couple of redundant drives working in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disk drives. All of the copies of a given file will have the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates right away, and if it detects a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll swap that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is a sudden power loss, the data on the servers won't be 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 file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
