Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm that we employ on the cloud internet hosting platform where your new cloud web hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it is used by the advanced ZFS file system that powers the platform. The algorithm is much better than the ones other file systems employ as its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data considerably quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens at a faster rate than information can be read from a hdd. For that reason, LZ4 improves the performance of every Internet site stored on a server which uses this algorithm. We take full advantage of LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to make a couple of daily backup copies of the entire content of all accounts and store them for thirty days. Not only do the backup copies take less space, but their generation won't slow the servers down like it can often happen with many other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is among the best algorithms out there and positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will speed up every Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 allows us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for one month as they will take much less space than regular backups and will be created much faster without loading the servers.
