RAID in Shared Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform employs for storage operate in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it uses the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information located 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 will continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the bad one, the information that will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the rest of the drives as well as the info from the parity disk. This is done in order to be able to recalculate the bits of each and every file correctly and to authenticate the integrity of the info cloned on the new drive. This is another level of security for the information you upload to your shared hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system that compares a special digital fingerprint for each file on all of the disk drives in real time.
