RAID in Shared Website Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform employs for storage operate in RAID-Z. This sort of RAID is intended to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it employs the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information stored on the other drives is copied with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks fails, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the problematic one, the info that will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives as well as the info from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file properly and to confirm the integrity of the data duplicated on the new drive. This is another level of security for the information which you upload to your shared website hosting account along with the ZFS file system that compares a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all drives in real time.
