Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The compression algorithm that we work with on the cloud internet hosting platform where your new cloud website hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it is applied by the exceptional ZFS file system that powers the system. The algorithm is more advanced than the ones other file systems use because its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data considerably quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens faster than info can be read from a hard disk. Because of this, LZ4 improves the performance of each Internet site hosted on a server that uses this particular algorithm. We use LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to make a number of daily backup copies of the full content of all accounts and store them for one month. Not only do the backup copies take less space, but their generation will not slow the servers down like it often happens with various other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which 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 web content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will boost any kind of site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. The high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, which is provided by the great number of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and have them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
