Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your cloud hosting account is created employs the impressive ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is superior in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it is also faster. The benefits are significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Although it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each site hosted on our servers shall be upgraded. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make a number of daily backups of the whole content in each and every Internet hosting account, so if you delete something by mistake, the last backup which we have will not be more than a few hours old. This can be done because the backups take a lot less space and their generation is quick enough, to not change the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is much quicker, in particular with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed data can be read from a hard disk drive, so your Internet sites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using a considerable amount of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform because it consists of a large number of clusters working together. In combination with the better performance, you will also have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you can recover any deleted content with just a few clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they take a lot less space than traditional backups.
