No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. The majority of internet hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. When a file on a drive gets damaged for whatever reason, however, it's more than likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because alternative file systems do not offer special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and 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 replaced with a good one from another drive. Since this happens immediately, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be resistant to silent data corruption because all of our storage servers make use of the innovative ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, to verify the integrity of every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be saved on a couple of redundant drives operating in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same on all disk drives. All the copies of a given file will have the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the duplicates right away, so if it finds a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll substitute that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is an unexpected power loss, the data on the servers will not be corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform after some malfunction, lengthening the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the sole file system which can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
