Data Compression in Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your hosting account will be made employs the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned uses is better in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which many other file systems use, but it is also much quicker. The gains can be significant in particular on compressible content like website files. While it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of every Internet site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to generate a large number of daily backups of the entire content in each web hosting account, so should you delete anything by mistake, the last back-up copy that we have will not be more than a few hours old. This is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not change the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which 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 certainly the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data quicker than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will accelerate any site that runs on a platform where the 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. Furthermore, LZ4 allows us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for one month as they'll take a smaller amount of space than regular backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
