RAID in Shared Web Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is created to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it works by using the so-called parity disk - a special drive where information located on the other drives is cloned with an extra bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks fails, your sites shall continue working from the other ones and after we replace the malfunctioning one, the data which will be cloned on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the remaining drives together with the information from the parity disk. This is done so as to be able to recalculate the bits of each and every file properly and to verify the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the info which you upload to your shared web hosting account along with the ZFS file system which analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each and every file on all disk drives in real time.
