ZFS Filesystem

InfiniCLOUD has a secure snapshot feature built in to each account to ensure that data may be restored in the event that it is accidentally deleted or overwritten.

This system allows for detailed snapshots to be taken every three hours, saving the last seven snapshots (one day's worth), along with daily detailed snapshots, saving the last fourteen snapshots, allowing accidentally deleted or overwritten data to be easily recovered (two weeks worth).

ZFS snapshot series are saved in the ZFS filesystem. Snapshots maintain the filesystem's content at the time they are made, consuming no space at first. After that, snapshots start to take up space equal to the difference between the data they refer to and the current filesystem state.




*You cannot recover data that is not contained in a ZFS snapshot.

The user's account data area houses all ZFS snapshots. If storage capacity is getting low, snapshots will be removed automatically.* There is not effect on the user's current data when these snapshots are deleted.

InfiniCLOUD relies on values reported by ZFS to determine files consumed capacity in the users account. ZFS capacity calculations differ from other systems such as NTFS, FAT, and HFS+. As a result, files the user uploads might not consume the same amount of space as InfiniCLOUD , as they might in your local device. Differences of approximately 70% to 130% can occur.&br()
