RAID in Shared Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform uses for storage function in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is designed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information stored on the other drives is copied with an additional bit added to it. In case one of the disks stops functioning, your sites shall continue working from the other ones and once we replace the malfunctioning one, the data that will be cloned on it will be recovered from what is stored on the remaining drives along with the info from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the bits of every file properly and to validate the integrity of the information cloned on the new drive. This is another level of security for the information you upload to your shared hosting account together with the ZFS file system which analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each and every file on all disk drives in real time.
