No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. The vast majority of hosting suppliers, including our company, use multiple hard drives to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, exactly the same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. When a file on a drive becomes damaged for reasons unknown, yet, it's very likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because alternative file systems do not feature special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy will be swapped with a good one from another disk drive. Due to the fact that this happens right away, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not need to deal with any silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to make sure that all files are intact all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is assigned to each and every file saved on a server. Due to the fact that we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, 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 in real time. In the event that 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 probability of the bad copy to be synchronized on the rest of the drives. ZFS is the only file system on the market that uses checksums, which makes it much more dependable than other file systems that are not able to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
