Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your cloud website hosting account shall be made employs the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is superior in many aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method which a variety of other file systems use, but it's also much quicker. The benefits are significant particularly on compressible content like website files. Even though it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of each site hosted on our servers shall be boosted. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make numerous daily backups of the entire content in each hosting account, so in the event you delete anything by mistake, the last backup that we have will not be more than a few hours old. This can be done because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, to not change the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account shall be created on a cloud platform which runs on the innovative ZFS file system. The latter uses a compression algorithm named LZ4, which is much better than various other algorithms in terms of compression ratio and speed. The gain is visible especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 much quicker than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a HDD. This is the reason why Internet sites running on a platform which uses LZ4 compression perform faster because the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. web content. One more advantage of using LZ4 is that the backup copies of the semi-dedicated accounts that we keep require less space and are generated a lot quicker, which enables us to have several daily backups of all your files and databases.
