RAID in Cloud Web Hosting
The hard disks that we employ for storage with our outstanding cloud Internet hosting platform are not the standard HDDs, but super fast solid-state drives (SSD). They function in RAID-Z - a special setup developed for the ZFS file system that we work with. All of the content that you upload to your cloud web hosting account will be held on multiple hard drives and at least 1 shall be employed as a parity disk. This is a specific drive where an extra bit is added to any content copied on it. If a disk in the RAID stops functioning, it will be changed without service disturbances and the info will be rebuilt on the new drive by recalculating its bits thanks to the data on the parity disk along with that on the other disks. This is done in order to guarantee the integrity of the data and together with the real-time checksum authentication that the ZFS file system executes on all drives, you'll never have to concern yourself with the loss of any info no matter what.
