Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can boost the performance of any site hosted in a cloud website hosting account with us since not only does it compress data more effectively than algorithms used by other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backup copies more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore the content that you may have erased by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that's behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is considerably faster, particularly with regard to uncompressing website content. It does that even faster than uncompressed info can be read from a hard disk drive, so your sites will perform better. The higher speed is at the expense of using a lot of CPU processing time, that's not a problem for our platform since it consists of numerous clusters working together. Along with the improved performance, you will also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you will be able to recover any deleted content with just a few clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they take significantly less space than standard backups.
