Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm that we work with on the cloud web hosting platform where your new cloud website hosting account will be created is named LZ4 and it's used by the revolutionary ZFS file system which powers the system. The algorithm is greater than the ones other file systems employ because its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data significantly quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed as this happens even faster than information can be read from a hard drive. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of each website located on a server that uses this particular algorithm. We take advantage of LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to produce several daily backups of the whole content of all accounts and store them for one month. Not only do the backup copies take less space, but their generation doesn't slow the servers down like it can often happen with other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is among the best algorithms out there and positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will quicken every Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that's provided by the multitude of clusters working together as part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for one month as they'll take much less space than typical backups and will be created much more quickly without loading the servers.
