RAID in Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This sort 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 special drive where info kept on the other drives is copied with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks stops working, your sites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the bad one, the info which will be cloned on it will be recovered from what is stored on the other drives along with the information from the parity disk. This is done in order to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file properly and to authenticate the integrity of the data duplicated on the new drive. This is an additional level of security for the information which you upload to your hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system that compares a unique digital fingerprint for each and every file on all of the disk drives in real time.
