RAID in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The SSD drives which are used for saving any website content uploaded to the semi-dedicated hosting accounts that we offer function in RAID-Z. This is a specific configuration where one or more disk drives are used for parity i.e. the system will include an additional bit to any data copied on such a hard drive. In case that a disk fails and is substituted with another one, what data will be copied on the latter will be a combination calculated between the data on the remaining disks and that on the parity one. This is done to guarantee that the info on the new drive will be correct. Throughout the process, the RAID will continue working adequately and the problematic drive will not have an impact on the adequate operation of your Internet sites by any means. Working with SSDs in RAID-Z is a superb addition to the ZFS file system which runs on our revolutionary cloud platform in terms of preserving the integrity of your files because ZFS uses specific digital identifiers known as checksums so as to prevent silent data corruption.
