No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of web hosting service providers, like our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and because the drives work in a RAID, the same info is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive becomes damaged for some reason, yet, it is very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives as alternative file systems don't include special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the bad copy shall be swapped with a good one from a different hard disk drive. Because this happens in real time, there is no risk 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 shielded from silent data corruption because all our storage servers make use of the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to ensure the integrity of every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on a couple of redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disks. All copies of a particular file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates in real time, and if it registers a mismatch, which would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's an unforeseen blackout, the data on the servers will not get corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform after some failure, extending the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the sole file system which can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
