RAID in Cloud Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it takes advantage of the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information saved on the other drives is duplicated with an additional bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops functioning, your websites will continue working from the other ones and once we replace the faulty one, the information which will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the other drives along with the information from the parity disk. This is done so as to be able to recalculate the bits of every file adequately and to validate the integrity of the information duplicated on the new drive. This is another level of security for the content you upload to your cloud hosting account along with the ZFS file system which compares a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all of the disk drives in real time.
