RAID in Cloud Web Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage function in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is created 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 stored on the other drives is cloned with an additional bit added to it. In case one of the disks fails, your Internet sites shall continue working from the other ones and after we replace the malfunctioning one, the information that will be cloned on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the remaining drives together with the info from the parity disk. This is done in order to be able to recalculate the elements of each and every file properly and to verify the integrity of the data copied on the new drive. This is another level of security for the info that you upload to your cloud web hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system which analyzes a special digital fingerprint for each and every file on all the hard drives in real time.
