RAID in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The info uploaded to any semi-dedicated hosting account is stored on SSD drives that work in RAID-Z. One of the drives in type of a setup is used for parity - whenever data is copied on it, an additional bit is added. In case a disk happens to be problematic, it will be removed from the RAID without interrupting the functioning of the Internet sites since the data will load from the rest of the drives, and when a brand new drive is included, the information which will be cloned on it will be a combination between the info on the parity disk and data kept on the other hard disks in the RAID. This is done so as to guarantee that the info which is being cloned is accurate, so the moment the new drive is rebuilt, it could be integrated into the RAID as a production one. This is an additional warranty for the integrity of your data since the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud Internet hosting platform compares a unique checksum of all the copies of the files on the different drives so as to avoid any possibility of silent data corruption.
