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 intended to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it works by using the so-called parity disk - a special drive where information stored on the other drives is duplicated with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks stops functioning, your sites shall continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the bad one, the information that will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives along with the information from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the elements of every single file properly and to authenticate the integrity of the data duplicated on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the info you upload to your shared hosting account along with the ZFS file system that analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all of the hard drives in real time.
