No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
We have tackled the matter of silent data corruption on our cloud hosting servers by using the cutting-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is more advanced than other file systems because it is the only one on the market which checks all files right away by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and frequently synced between them for redundancy. ZFS regularly examines the checksum of all files and in the event that any file is detected as corrupted, it's replaced instantly with a good copy from some other disk. As this happens in real time, there's no risk that a damaged file may remain or may be duplicated on the rest of the SSDs. ZFS needs plenty of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud website hosting platform is that we employ multiple very powerful servers working together. In case you host your sites with us, your info will be undamaged no matter what.
