RAID in Cloud Website Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a special drive where info stored on the other drives is copied with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks stops functioning, your sites will continue working from the other ones and once we replace the bad one, the data which will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the remaining drives along with the data 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 data copied on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account together with the ZFS file system which compares a special digital fingerprint for each file on all the drives in real time.
