Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared website hosting account with us because not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms used by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform due to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backup copies more speedily and on less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore the content that you could have erased by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably faster, especially with regard to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed info can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using a considerable amount of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform as it consists of numerous clusters working together. In combination with the superior performance, you'll also have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you'll be able to recover any deleted content with a couple of clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to store them since they take considerably less space than traditional backups.
