No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. The vast majority of internet hosting providers, including our company, use multiple hard drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, the exact same info is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive is damaged for reasons unknown, however, it is very likely that it will be copied on the other drives as alternative file systems do not have special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the damaged copy will be replaced with a good one from another drive. As this happens immediately, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be protected against silent data corruption because all of our storage servers use the effective ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, to guarantee the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it will be kept on a couple of redundant drives in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all drives. All the copies of a specific file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies quickly, and if it detects a mismatch, which will indicate that one of the copies is damaged, it'll replace that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is an unforeseen blackout, the data on the servers won't become corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some breakdown, lengthening the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the sole file system which can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
