No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting service providers, including our firm, use multiple HDDs to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same data is synchronized between the drives at all times. When a file on a drive gets corrupted for whatever reason, yet, it is very likely that it will be copied on the other drives because alternative file systems don't have special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS works with a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. Since this happens immediately, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't need to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever if you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to make sure that all the files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is given to each and every file stored on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on a number of drives at the same time, the same file uses 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 should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any possibility of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard drives. ZFS is the sole file system on the market that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that are unable to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
