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 which we work with on our cloud platform. Most of the hosting service providers, including our firm, use multiple hard disks to keep content and since the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same data is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive is corrupted for whatever reason, however, it's very likely that it will be copied on the other drives since alternative file systems do not have special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the damaged copy will be substituted with a good one from a different drive. Due to the fact that this happens immediately, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have to deal with any silent data corruption issues whatsoever should you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server solutions due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to ensure that all of your files are undamaged all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is assigned to each and every file saved on a server. Because we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file uses 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. When 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 bad copy to be synchronized on the other hard drives. ZFS is the only file system you will find which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems which are unable to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
