No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you will not have to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform uses the reliable ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system that uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. Any kind of data that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on a number of SSDs. All file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives using such a setup, but there is no real guarantee that a file will not be corrupted. This may occur at the time of the writing process on each drive and afterwards a bad copy can be copied on the rest of the drives. What makes the difference on our platform is the fact that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all drives live and when a corrupted file is identified, it is swapped with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. This way, your data will remain unharmed no matter what, even if an entire drive fails.
