RAID in Cloud Website Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform uses for storage work in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is designed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it employs the so-called parity disk - a special drive where info saved on the other drives is cloned with an extra bit added to it. In the event that one of the disks stops functioning, your Internet sites shall continue working from the other ones and after we replace the bad one, the info which will be copied on it will be rebuilt from what is stored on the other drives as well as the info from the parity disk. This is done in order to be able to recalculate the bits of every single file adequately and to verify the integrity of the info copied on the new drive. This is an additional level of security for the info that you upload to your cloud website hosting account together with the ZFS file system which analyzes a special digital fingerprint for each and every file on all the hard drives in real time.
RAID in VPS Web Hosting
The physical servers where we generate virtual private server work with extremely fast SSD drives which will boost the speed of your websites significantly. The disk drives work in RAID to make sure that you won't lose any information as a result of a power loss or a hardware malfunction. The production servers work with multiple drives where the information is kept and one disk is used for parity i.e. one bit is added to all of the data copied on it, which makes it easier to recover the content without any loss if a main drive fails. If you take advantage of our backup service, the info will be kept on an independent machine which uses standard hard-disk drives and though there isn't a parity one in this case, they are also in a RAID to ensure that we will have a backup copy of your site content at all times. With this type of configuration your data will always be safe because it will be available on several disk drives.
