Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The compression algorithm which we employ on the cloud hosting platform where your new shared web hosting account shall be created is named LZ4 and it's used by the leading-edge ZFS file system which powers the system. The algorithm is better than the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data considerably faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed as this happens even faster than data can be read from a hdd. For that reason, LZ4 improves the performance of each and every site located on a server that uses this algorithm. We take full advantage of LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to produce multiple daily backups of the full content of all accounts and store them for a month. Not only do these backup copies take less space, but also their generation does not slow the servers down like it often happens with alternative file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our firm, 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 web hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably faster, in particular with regard to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed information can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform better. The higher speed is at the expense of using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not an issue for our platform as it consists of a large number of clusters working together. In addition to the better performance, you'll have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you can recover any deleted content with several clicks. The backups are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them as they take considerably less space than conventional backups.
