No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. The majority of hosting providers, including our company, use multiple hard disk drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, identical data is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive is corrupted for reasons unknown, yet, it's likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy shall be replaced with a good one from a different drive. As this happens in real time, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be shielded from silent data corruption as all of our storage servers work with the reliable ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, so as to guarantee the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be saved on a couple of redundant drives employed in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disk drives. All the copies of a particular file will have the same checksum on all hard drives and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies right away, so if it finds a mismatch, that will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll replace that file with a healthy copy from one of the other disks. Even if there's a sudden power failure, the data on the servers will not get corrupted and there won't be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform following some malfunction, prolonging the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the sole file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
