RAID in Semi-dedicated Servers
The info uploaded to any semi-dedicated server account is stored on SSD drives which operate in RAID-Z. One of the drives in such a setup is used for parity - each time data is copied on it, an additional bit is added. If a disk happens to be flawed, it will be removed from the RAID without disturbing the operation of the Internet sites as the data will load from the remaining drives, and when a new drive is included, the information which will be duplicated on it will be a combination between the information on the parity disk and data stored on the other drives in the RAID. That is done to ensure that the data which is being cloned is correct, so once 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 information as the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform analyzes a special checksum of all of the copies of the files on the separate drives in order to avoid any chance of silent data corruption.
