Data Compression in Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your hosting account will be created works by using the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is superior in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that a number of other file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The benefits will be significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Even though it could sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each and every website hosted on our servers will be better. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate numerous daily backups of the entire content in each and every web hosting account, so if you delete anything by accident, the last back-up copy which we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done as the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, especially with regard to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed info can be read from a hard drive, so your sites will perform faster. The higher speed comes at the expense of using plenty of CPU processing time, that is not an issue for our platform since it consists of a large number of clusters working together. In addition to the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you'll be able to recover any deleted content with just a couple of clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they need a lot less space than standard backups.
