Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your cloud web hosting account is made uses the reliable ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter uses is better in many aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method which similar file systems use, but it is also faster. The gains may be significant particularly on compressible content which includes website files. Despite the fact that it could sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of any Internet site hosted on our servers will be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate numerous daily backups of the entire content in each and every Internet hosting account, so should you delete anything by mistake, the last backup which we have will not be more than several hours old. This is possible because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not influence the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is among the best algorithms out there and certainly the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will speed up any Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as a part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for a month as they will take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be generated much quicker without loading the servers.
