Data Compression in Web Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on our cloud Internet hosting platform employs a compression algorithm called LZ4. The aforementioned is significantly faster and better than any other algorithm you will find, particularly for compressing and uncompressing non-binary data i.e. web content. LZ4 even uncompresses data quicker than it is read from a hard drive, which improves the overall performance of websites hosted on ZFS-based platforms. Due to the fact that the algorithm compresses data quite well and it does that very fast, we're able to generate several backups of all the content stored in the web hosting accounts on our servers every day. Both your content and its backups will require reduced space and since both ZFS and LZ4 work extremely fast, the backup generation will not influence the performance of the servers where your content will be stored.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our firm, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a higher compression ratio and it is much faster, 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 faster. The higher speed comes at the expense of using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform because it consists of a large number of clusters working together. In addition to the superior performance, you'll have multiple daily backups at your disposal, so you will 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 store them as they take significantly less space than traditional backups.
