RAID in Cloud Web Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform uses for storage operate in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where info stored on the other drives is copied with an extra bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops functioning, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the malfunctioning one, the info which will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the other drives together with the information from the parity disk. This is performed in order to be able to recalculate the bits of every single file properly and to authenticate the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is an additional level of security for the info which you upload to your cloud web hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system which analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all drives in real time.
