Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm which we use on the cloud web hosting platform where your new cloud web hosting account will be created is named LZ4 and it is applied by the leading-edge ZFS file system which powers the platform. The algorithm is a lot better than the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data considerably faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens quicker than data can be read from a hard disk drive. Because of this, LZ4 improves the performance of any Internet site hosted on a server that uses this algorithm. We use LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to make multiple daily backups of the whole content of all accounts and store them for thirty days. Not only do these backup copies take less space, but their generation doesn't slow the servers down like it often happens with many other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our company, you'll be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is much faster, particularly with regard to uncompressing website content. It does that even faster than uncompressed data can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not an issue for our platform as it consists of a large number of clusters working together. Besides the improved performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you can recover any deleted content with several clicks. The backups are available for a whole month and we can afford to keep them since they need a lot less space than ordinary backups.
