Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by other file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies much quicker and on less disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore any content that you could have removed by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our firm, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud web hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is much faster, especially when it comes to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed data can be read from a hard drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed is at the expense of using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform because it consists of numerous clusters working together. Together with the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you will be able to restore any deleted content with several clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they take a lot less space than standard backups.
