No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we use on our cloud platform. Most internet hosting service providers, like our firm, use multiple HDDs to store content and since 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 is damaged for reasons unknown, however, it's very likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since other file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, so the bad copy will be replaced with a good one from a different hard drive. Since this happens right away, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever get corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will not have to be concerned about silent data corruption as we use ZFS - a high level file system which checks all files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. This file will be synchronized between a number of SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take control. ZFS compares the checksum of all of the copies on the different drives and when it detects a corrupted copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This happens right away, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, alternative file systems carry out checks after a system malfunction, but since they don't use anything similar to the checksums that ZFS uses, they can't detect silently corrupted files, so a bad copy can be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you could lose important information. Since this is not the case with ZFS, we're able to guarantee the integrity of every single file you upload no matter what.
