No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't need to deal with any silent data corruption issues if you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans because the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to ensure that all the files are undamaged all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is assigned to each and every file kept on a server. Since we store all content on a number of drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. In the event that 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 rest of the hard drives. ZFS is the sole file system out there which uses checksums, which makes it far superior to other file systems that cannot detect silent data corruption and duplicate bad files across hard drives.
