No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've avoided any risk of files getting corrupted silently as the servers where your semi-dedicated server account will be created employ a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its advantage over various other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint that's checked in real time. Since we keep all content on multiple SSD drives, ZFS checks if the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the rest of the drives and the one it has stored. In the event that there's a mismatch, the corrupted copy is replaced with a healthy one from one of the other drives and since this happens in real time, there is no chance that a damaged copy can remain on our servers or that it can be copied to the other drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems use this type of checks and in addition, even during a file system check following a sudden blackout, none of them will detect silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS will not crash after a power failure and the constant checksum monitoring makes a lenghty file system check unneeded.
