RAID in Cloud Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it uses the so-called parity disk - a special drive where info located on the other drives is cloned with an extra bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops working, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the malfunctioning one, the information that will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives together with the data from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the elements of every single file adequately and to validate the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the information that you upload to your cloud hosting account together with the ZFS file system that compares a unique digital fingerprint for every single file on all hard drives in real time.
