No Data Corruption & Data Integrity
Discover what ‘No Data Corruption & Data Integrity’ signifies for the info in your website hosting account.
The process of files getting corrupted owing to some hardware or software failure is referred to as data corruption and this is one of the main problems that Internet hosting companies face as the larger a hard disk drive is and the more information is filed on it, the more likely it is for data to get corrupted. There are several fail-safes, yet often the info becomes damaged silently, so neither the file system, nor the administrators see a thing. Consequently, a bad file will be handled as a standard one and if the HDD is part of a RAID, the file will be duplicated on all other drives. Theoretically, this is done for redundancy, but in reality the damage will get even worse. When a file gets damaged, it will be partially or completely unreadable, so a text file will not be readable, an image file will show a random combination of colors if it opens at all and an archive will be impossible to unpack, and you risk sacrificing your content. Although the most frequently used server file systems feature various checks, they frequently fail to detect a problem early enough or require a long period of time in order to check all the files and the web hosting server will not be functional for the time being.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Web Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud web hosting
account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system which we work with on our cloud platform. The majority of web hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard disk drives to keep content and because the drives work in a RAID, the exact same data is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive gets damaged for some reason, yet, it's likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives because other file systems don't have special checks for that. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the bad copy will be swapped with a good one from a different hard disk drive. Due to the fact that this happens in real time, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't need to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server
packages since the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to make sure that all files are intact all the time. 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 multiple drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all of 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 without delay, avoiding any possibility of the damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining drives. ZFS is the sole file system you can find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that cannot identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
