RAID in Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This sort of RAID is designed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it uses the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where info stored on the other drives is cloned with an additional bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops working, your sites shall continue working from the other ones and once we replace the bad one, the information that will be cloned on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the other drives along with the info from the parity disk. This is performed in order to be able to recalculate the bits of every single file correctly and to validate the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the information which you upload to your hosting account together with the ZFS file system which analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for every single file on all hard drives in real time.
