Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can improve the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account with us since 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 disk drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform because it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups much more quickly and on less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always recover all content that you could have erased by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our firm, you will be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud web hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is way quicker, especially when it comes to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed info can be read from a hard disk drive, so your sites will perform better. 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 multiple clusters working together. In addition to the improved performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you could restore any deleted content with a few clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them as they take considerably less space than standard backups.
