No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new web hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. Most internet hosting service providers, including our company, use multiple hard disk drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, the same information is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive is damaged for reasons unknown, however, it is likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In case a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy will be swapped with a good one from another disk drive. Due to the fact that this happens instantly, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've avoided any possibility of files getting damaged silently due to the fact that the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created take advantage of a powerful file system called ZFS. Its main advantage over other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for every single file - a digital fingerprint which is checked in real time. Since we store all content on a number of SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the remaining drives and the one it has stored. When there's a mismatch, the bad copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and because this happens instantly, there's no chance that a damaged copy can remain on our hosting servers or that it could be duplicated to the other hard disks in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this type of checks and furthermore, even during a file system check following an unexpected power loss, none of them can detect silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS won't crash after a power loss and the constant checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check obsolete.
