RAID in Shared Web Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This sort of RAID is created to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it employs the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where info located on the other drives is duplicated with an additional bit added to it. If one of the disks stops functioning, your websites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the problematic one, the data that will be duplicated on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the rest of the drives along with the info from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the bits of each and every file correctly and to authenticate the integrity of the info cloned on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the content which you upload to your shared web hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system that analyzes a unique digital fingerprint for each file on all the hard drives in real time.
