RAID in Cloud Web Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is intended to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it uses the so-called parity disk - a special drive where information located on the other drives is cloned with an additional bit added to it. In case one of the disks stops working, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and as soon as we replace the problematic one, the data which will be duplicated on it will be rebuilt 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 each file adequately and to verify the integrity of the information copied on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system that analyzes a special digital fingerprint for each file on all of the hard drives in real time.
