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 employ on our cloud platform. The majority of hosting providers, including our firm, use multiple HDDs to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, the exact same info is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive becomes corrupted for whatever reason, yet, it is likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because alternative file systems do not have special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the damaged copy will be substituted with a good one from another hard drive. As this happens right away, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not experience any kind of silent data corruption issues should you get one of our semi-dedicated server solutions because the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to make sure that all the files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is allotted to each and every file saved on a server. As we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all of 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 should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy without delay, avoiding any possibility of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the rest of the drives. ZFS is the sole file system on the market that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which are unable to detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
