Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your cloud web hosting account is made works by using the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is superior in various aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which some other file systems use, but it is also quicker. The gains will be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. While it may sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of any Internet site hosted on our servers shall be better. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to generate multiple daily backups of the entire content in each web hosting account, so in the event you delete anything by mistake, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done because the backups take much less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
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's one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a faster rate than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will boost every website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for one month as they will take much less space than typical backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
