Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm that we work with on the cloud hosting platform where your new cloud hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it is used by the exceptional ZFS file system that powers the system. The algorithm is greater than the ones other file systems use as its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data considerably quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed as this happens at a faster rate than data can be read from a hdd. As a result, LZ4 improves the performance of each Internet site located on a server that uses this algorithm. We take advantage of LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to produce a couple of daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for a month. Not only do the backups take less space, but also their generation doesn't slow the servers down like it often happens with some other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's among the best algorithms out there and certainly the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a faster rate than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will quicken any kind of website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that's provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 enables us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for one month as they will take a reduced amount of space than typical backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
