Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm which we use on the cloud hosting platform where your new cloud website hosting account shall be created is called LZ4 and it's applied by the advanced ZFS file system that powers the platform. The algorithm is more advanced than the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data considerably faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens even faster than data can be read from a hard drive. For that reason, LZ4 improves the performance of any website hosted on a server which uses this particular algorithm. We take full advantage of LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to produce a number of daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for a month. Not only do these backups take less space, but in addition their generation won't slow the servers down like it often happens with alternative file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you'll be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, especially with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed data can be read from a hard drive, so your sites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using a considerable amount of CPU processing time, that's not an issue for our platform because it consists of a lot of clusters working together. Along with the better performance, you will 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 keep them since they need significantly less space than ordinary backups.
