Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our end because not only does it compress data 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 can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to generate backup copies much more rapidly and on less disk space, so we will have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. That way, we can always recover any content that you may have deleted by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that's behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably faster, in particular 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 faster. The higher speed comes at the expense of using plenty of CPU processing time, that's not an issue for our platform since it consists of a large number of clusters working together. Besides the improved performance, you'll also have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you will be able to restore any deleted content with just a couple of clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to store them as they need considerably less space than conventional backups.
