Data Compression in Website Hosting
The compression algorithm that we use on the cloud internet hosting platform where your new website hosting account will be created is known as LZ4 and it is applied by the state-of-the-art ZFS file system that powers the system. The algorithm is far better than the ones other file systems use because its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data considerably faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens faster than information can be read from a hard disk. For that reason, LZ4 improves the performance of each and every site located on a server which uses this algorithm. We use LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to produce multiple daily backup copies of the full content of all accounts and store them for thirty days. Not only do our backup copies take less space, but also their generation will not slow the servers down like it can often happen with some other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is among the best algorithms out there and definitely the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data quicker than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will accelerate any website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, which is provided by the large number of clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for a month as they will take much less space than regular backups and will be generated much faster without loading the servers.
