No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. Most web hosting service providers, including our company, use multiple hard disks to store content and because the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive is damaged for some reason, yet, it is likely that it will be copied on the other drives as alternative file systems don't offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the bad copy shall be substituted with a good one from another disk drive. Since this happens right away, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will not have to worry about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - an advanced file system which monitors all of the files in real time. Each time you upload a file to your hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synced between a couple of SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and in case it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This happens in real time, so there will be no risk for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, other file systems perform checks after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they won't detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy can be replicated on the rest of the drives as well and you can lose precious information. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we're able to warrant the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
