Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a cloud hosting account with us since not only does it compress data significantly better than algorithms used by various other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backups much more rapidly and on less disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. In this way, we can always restore any kind of content that you could have deleted by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our company, you'll be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is much faster, particularly when it comes to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed data 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 a problem for our platform since it consists of numerous clusters working together. Besides the improved performance, you'll also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you'll be able to restore 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 take a lot less space than traditional backups.
