No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud platform. The majority of hosting providers, including our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, identical information is synchronized between the drives all the time. When a file on a drive becomes corrupted for reasons unknown, yet, it's likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives as other file systems do not offer special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In case a file gets corrupted, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the damaged copy will be swapped with a good one from another hard disk. As this happens instantly, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have to deal with any silent data corruption issues should you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages due to the fact that the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to ensure that all of your files are intact at all times. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is assigned to each and every file stored on a server. As we store all content on a number of drives simultaneously, the same file uses the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. When it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the corrupted copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard disks. ZFS is the sole file system you will find that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that are not able to identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
