RAID in Shared Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is designed 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 duplicated with an additional bit added to it. In case one of the disks stops working, your sites will continue working from the other ones and once we replace the malfunctioning one, the data which will be cloned on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the remaining drives as well as the information from the parity disk. This is performed in order to be able to recalculate the elements of every file correctly and to verify the integrity of the information copied on the new drive. This is an additional level of security for the information that you upload to your shared hosting account along with the ZFS file system that analyzes a special digital fingerprint for every single file on all hard drives in real time.
