RAID in Website Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is designed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it works by using the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where data kept on the other drives is cloned with an additional bit added to it. If one of the disks fails, your Internet sites shall continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the faulty one, the data that will be duplicated on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the remaining drives as well as the info from the parity disk. This is done in order to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file correctly and to validate the integrity of the info cloned on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the information that you upload to your website hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system that analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each and every file on all of the disk drives in real time.
