No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Web Hosting
The integrity of the data that you upload to your new shared web hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud platform. The vast majority of web hosting service providers, like our company, use multiple hard disks to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the exact same data is synchronized between the drives all the time. In case a file on a drive gets damaged for reasons unknown, however, it's more than likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems do not offer special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from a different drive. Since this happens immediately, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you won't need to be concerned about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system that checks all the files in real time. Whenever you upload a file to your web hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. That file will be synchronized between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if one drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and if it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from a different drive. This is done instantly, so there will be no threat for any part of your content at any moment. In comparison, other file systems carry out checks only after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they cannot detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy could be replicated on the other drives as well and you may lose critical information. As this isn't the case with ZFS, we are able to guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
