No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will not have to worry about any of your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that because our cloud hosting platform uses the amazing ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system which works with checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for every single file. All the information that you upload will be stored in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on multiple SSD drives. All the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives with this type of a setup, but there is no real guarantee that a file will not get corrupted. This can happen at the time of the writing process on any drive and after that a bad copy may be copied on the other drives. What is different on our platform is the fact that ZFS examines the checksums of all files on all of the drives immediately and in the event that a corrupted file is identified, it is swapped with a good copy with the correct checksum from some other drive. That way, your information will continue to be unharmed no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
