Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm which we employ on the cloud web hosting platform where your new shared hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it's applied by the cutting-edge ZFS file system that powers the system. The algorithm is far better than the ones other file systems employ since its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data significantly faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens quicker than data can be read from a hard disk drive. As a result, LZ4 improves the performance of any Internet site hosted on a server which uses this algorithm. We take advantage of LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to make several daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and keep them for a month. Not only do these backups take less space, but also their generation won't slow the servers down like it can often happen with other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, particularly with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed information can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed is at the expense of using plenty of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform as it consists of numerous clusters working together. Together with the superior performance, you will also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you'll be able to recover 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 significantly less space compared to traditional backups.
