No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues whatsoever in case you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans since the ZFS file system that we use 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 which is given to each and every file stored on a server. Because we store all content on a number of drives at the same time, the same file has the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives in real time. When it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the bad copy to be synchronized on the remaining hard disks. ZFS is the sole file system you can find that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which are not able to identify silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
