RAID in Cloud Hosting
The SSD drives that our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform employs for storage work in RAID-Z. This type of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system which runs on the platform and it works by using the so-called parity disk - a special drive where info stored on the other drives is copied with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks stops working, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and once we replace the bad one, the information which will be cloned on it will be recovered from what is stored on the remaining drives along with the information from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the elements of each file adequately and to validate the integrity of the information cloned on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the information that you upload to your cloud hosting account together with the ZFS file system which compares a special digital fingerprint for each file on all the disk drives in real time.
