RAID in Shared Website Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage operate in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it employs the so-called parity disk - a special drive where info kept on the other drives is copied with an additional bit added to it. In case one of the disks stops functioning, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the bad one, the information that will be cloned on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives together with the information from the parity disk. This is performed in order to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file adequately and to verify the integrity of the data cloned on the new drive. This is another level of security for the content which you upload to your shared website hosting account together with the ZFS file system which analyzes a special digital fingerprint for every single file on all hard drives in real time.
