RAID in Shared Website Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud 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 takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a special drive where data stored on the other drives is cloned with an additional bit added to it. If one of the disks stops working, your websites will continue working from the other ones and once we replace the bad one, the information that will be duplicated on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the other drives together with the info from the parity disk. This is performed in order to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file adequately and to authenticate the integrity of the data copied on the new drive. This is another level of security for the info that you upload to your shared website hosting account along with the ZFS file system that analyzes a special digital fingerprint for each file on all disk drives in real time.
