RAID in Web Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform uses for storage function in RAID-Z. This sort of RAID is intended to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it works by using the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information located on the other drives is duplicated with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks stops working, your websites shall continue working from the other ones and after we replace the problematic one, the information which will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the remaining drives together with the data from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file adequately and to validate the integrity of the information copied on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the info which you upload to your web hosting account along with the ZFS file system that compares a unique digital fingerprint for every single file on all drives in real time.
