No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our firm, you will not have to worry about your data ever getting corrupted. We can ensure that because our cloud hosting platform employs the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The latter is the only file system that uses checksums, or unique digital fingerprints, for each file. All the data that you upload will be saved in a RAID i.e. simultaneously on a large number of SSDs. All the file systems synchronize the files between the separate drives with such a setup, but there is no real warranty that a file won't get corrupted. This may happen throughout the writing process on any drive and after that 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 instantly and in case a corrupted file is identified, it's replaced with a good copy with the correct checksum from another drive. That way, your info will remain intact no matter what, even if a whole drive fails.
