Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud website hosting account with us because not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by various file systems, but 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 owing to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to generate backup copies more quickly and on less disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always recover all the content that you could have deleted by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our firm, you'll be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that's behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, particularly with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed info can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using a lot of CPU processing time, that's not a problem for our platform because it consists of a lot of clusters working together. Along with the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you can restore any deleted content with several clicks. The backup copies are available for a whole month and we can afford to keep them since they need significantly less space than standard backups.
