No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
We've dealt with the issue of silent data corruption on our cloud hosting servers by using the leading-edge Z file system, or ZFS. The latter is better than other file systems since it is the only one on the market which checks all the files right away by employing a checksum - a digital identifier that's unique for every single file. When you upload content to your account, it will be stored on several SSD drives and constantly synced between them for redundancy. ZFS constantly compares the checksum of all files and when any file is detected as damaged, it is replaced promptly with a good copy from another disk. As this happens in real time, there is no risk that a bad file may remain or may be copied on the remaining SSDs. ZFS requires a lot of physical memory in order to perform the real-time checks and the benefit of our cloud hosting platform is that we take advantage of multiple very powerful servers working together. If you host your Internet sites with us, your information will be intact no matter what.
