No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new cloud hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system which we work with on our cloud platform. Most of the internet hosting suppliers, like our firm, use multiple hard drives to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the same info is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive gets corrupted for reasons unknown, yet, it's likely that it will be copied on the other drives as alternative file systems do not feature special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. If a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy will be substituted with a good one from another hard drive. As this happens right away, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't encounter any silent data corruption issues whatsoever if you obtain one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans because the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to ensure that all files are intact at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is allotted to each and every file kept on a server. Since we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all the 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 has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the other drives. ZFS is the sole file system available on the market which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which are not able to identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
