No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. The vast majority of web hosting providers, like our firm, use multiple hard drives to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. In case a file on a drive gets corrupted for whatever reason, yet, it's more than likely that it will be copied on the other drives as other 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 damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the bad copy shall be replaced with a good one from a different drive. Because this happens immediately, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be protected against silent data corruption since all our storage servers employ the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. What makes the latter unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, in order to guarantee the integrity of each and every file. When you upload content to your account, it'll be stored on a couple of redundant drives in a RAID i.e. the files will be the same across all disks. All the copies of a given file will feature the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies in real time, so if it finds a mismatch, that would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it will swap that file with a healthy copy from one of the other drives. Even if there is a sudden power loss, the data on the servers won't be corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check which other file systems perform after some breakdown, prolonging the time needed for the server to return online. ZFS is the only file system which can really protect your content from silent data corruption.
