Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm that we use on the cloud web hosting platform where your new cloud hosting account will be created is named 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 since its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data significantly faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens at a faster rate than info can be read from a hard disk drive. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of any Internet site stored on a server that uses this particular algorithm. We use LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to generate several daily backup copies of the entire content of all accounts and store them for a month. Not only do our backups take less space, but their generation won't slow the servers down like it can often happen with alternative file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is much faster, especially when it comes to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed information can be read from a hard drive, so your Internet sites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not an issue for our platform because it consists of numerous clusters working together. In addition to the better performance, you'll also have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you can restore any deleted content with a few clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to store them as they need a lot less space than ordinary backups.
