Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can improve the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms used by other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform owing to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backup copies more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we will have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we can always restore any kind of content that you could have removed by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you will be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed 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 much quicker, especially with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed information can be read from a hard disk drive, so your sites will perform better. The higher speed is at the expense of using a considerable amount of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform since it consists of multiple clusters working together. Along with the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you can restore any deleted content with a few clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to store them as they need a lot less space compared to standard backups.
