Data Compression in Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your hosting account is generated employs the impressive ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned uses is better in many aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that a number of other file systems use, but it is also much faster. The gains may be significant especially on compressible content such as website files. While it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of every site hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to make numerous daily backups of the whole content in each hosting account, so if you delete anything by accident, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, to not influence the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you will be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud hosting platform. What differentiates LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is much quicker, in particular when it comes to uncompressing website content. It does that even faster than uncompressed info can be read from a hard disk drive, so your sites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using lots of CPU processing time, that's not a problem for our platform because it consists of multiple clusters working together. Besides the better performance, you will also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you will be able to restore any deleted content with just a couple of clicks. The backup copies are available for a whole month and we can afford to keep them because they need significantly less space compared to standard backups.
