Data Compression in Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a web hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies faster and on less disk space, so we can have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any content that you may have deleted by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our firm, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is much quicker, in particular when it comes to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed information can be read from a hard drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using lots of CPU processing time, that's not a problem for our platform as it consists of numerous clusters working together. In addition to the improved performance, you'll have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you could recover any deleted content with just a few clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them as they need a lot less space compared to ordinary backups.
