Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is called LZ4. It can boost the performance of any site hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info much better than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to generate backups much quicker and on lower disk space, so we will have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always restore all the content that you may have removed by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our firm, you will be able to 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 other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is much quicker, particularly with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker 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 great deal of CPU processing time, that is not an issue for our platform as it consists of multiple clusters working together. Besides the better performance, you will also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you could restore any deleted content with just a couple of clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them as they need a lot less space than ordinary backups.
