ZFS redundancy?

Post subject:  ZFS redundancy?

I understand that "cloud" hosting plans use ZFS storage. How much redundancy is there in the event of data corruption combined with drive failures? In the past I have used a ZFS 3-way mirror so if a drive fails, any data corruption detected while copying data to a new drive can be corrected with a good copy of the data from one of the remaining 2 drives. Can you tell me about your ZFS configuration, and how unlikely data loss is?

We can not offer such system configuration information and data loss is quite unlikely to happen. We have actually never experienced any data loss since using ZFS.
Again, I would suggest you to use the trouble ticket ticket system for your requests related to the hosting services where more accurate information could be provided for your account specifically.

Feel free to contact us again, if there is anything else we can help you with.
