Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your cloud hosting account will be generated employs the revolutionary ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned employs is better in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which some other file systems use, but it's also faster. The benefits may be significant in particular on compressible content which includes website files. Despite the fact that it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk drive, so the performance of every website hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to make a large number of daily backups of the whole content in each web hosting account, so should you delete something by accident, the last backup that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, to not influence the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account will be created on a cloud platform that is run on the advanced ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm known as LZ4, that is far better than all the other algorithms when it comes to compression ratio and speed. The gain is apparent especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 much quicker than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a HDD. This is why websites running on a platform which employs LZ4 compression perform better as the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. website content. A further advantage of using LZ4 is that the backups of the semi-dedicated accounts that we keep need significantly less space and they are generated a lot quicker, which allows us to have multiple daily backups of all your files and databases.
