Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your cloud hosting account is generated employs the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is superior in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method which similar file systems use, but it is also quicker. The gains will be significant particularly on compressible content which includes website files. Even though it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each Internet site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to produce a number of daily backups of the whole content in every single Internet hosting account, so in the event you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy that we have will not be more than several hours old. This can be done because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, to not influence the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a faster rate than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will speed up any site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, which is provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for a month as they will take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be generated much more quickly without loading the servers.
