RAID in Cloud Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform uses for storage work in RAID-Z. This sort of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a special drive where information saved on the other drives is duplicated with an additional bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops working, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the bad one, the info which will be duplicated on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives along with the info from the parity disk. This is done so as to be able to recalculate the bits of each and every file adequately and to confirm the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is another level of security for the content you upload to your cloud hosting account together with the ZFS file system that compares a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all the drives in real time.
