Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can improve the performance of any Internet site hosted in a hosting account with us as not only does it compress info much better than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform owing to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backup copies more speedily and on less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. This way, we can always recover any content that you may have deleted by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites 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's behind our advanced cloud web hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is considerably faster, in particular with regard to uncompressing website content. It does that even faster than uncompressed information can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using a great deal of CPU processing time, that's not an issue for our platform since it consists of numerous clusters working together. In addition to the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you could recover any deleted content with a few clicks. The backup copies are available for a whole month and we can afford to keep them as they need significantly less space than traditional backups.
