Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm which we work with on the cloud web hosting platform where your new cloud website hosting account will be created is named LZ4 and it is used by the leading-edge ZFS file system which powers the system. The algorithm is superior to the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is higher and it processes data significantly quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed as this happens even faster than data can be read from a hard disk. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of each Internet site located on a server which uses this particular algorithm. We take advantage of LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to make a number of daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for thirty days. Not only do the backups take less space, but also their generation will not slow the servers down like it often happens with various other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your sites 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 faster, in particular when it comes to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed data 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, that is not an issue for our platform as it consists of a lot of clusters working together. Along with the improved performance, you'll also have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you can recover any deleted content with just a few clicks. The backups are available for a whole month and we can afford to store them because they need considerably less space than conventional backups.
