Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm that we employ on the cloud internet hosting platform where your new cloud hosting account shall be created is called LZ4 and it's used by the exceptional ZFS file system that powers the system. The algorithm is greater than the ones other file systems employ as its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data a lot faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed as this happens even faster than info can be read from a hdd. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of any site hosted on a server which uses the algorithm. We use LZ4 in an additional way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to make a couple of daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for a month. Not only do our backups take less space, but in addition their generation will not slow the servers down like it can often happen 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 one of the best algorithms out there and positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data at a higher speed than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will speed up any Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, which is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and have them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
