No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be protected against silent data corruption since all of our storage servers make use of the efficient ZFS file system. What makes the aforementioned unique is that it employs checksums, or digital identifiers, to guarantee the integrity of each file. When you upload content to your account, it will be saved on several redundant drives operating in a RAID i.e. the files shall be the same across all disk drives. All copies of a specific file will have the same checksum on all hard disks and ZFS will compare the checksums of the copies quickly, so if it registers a mismatch, which would indicate that one of the copies is corrupted, it'll substitute that file with a good copy from one of the other disks. Even if there is an unforeseen blackout, the data on the servers will not be corrupted and there will not be any need for a time-consuming system check that other file systems perform following some breakdown, lengthening the time needed for the server to go back online. ZFS is the only file system that can truly protect your content from silent data corruption.
