Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your cloud hosting account will be generated uses the outstanding ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned uses is better in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it is also quicker. The benefits will be significant particularly on compressible content like website files. Despite the fact that it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each site hosted on our servers shall be upgraded. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to make multiple daily backups of the whole content in each hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last backup that we have will not be more than several hours old. This is possible as the backups take much less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not affect the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account shall be created on a cloud platform that runs using the state-of-the-art ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm called LZ4, that is significantly better than alternative algorithms regarding compression ratio and speed. The gain is significant particularly when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 a lot faster than other algorithms, but it is also faster in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a hard disk. This is why websites running on a platform which uses LZ4 compression perform better since the algorithm is most efficient when it processes compressible data i.e. website content. Another 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 faster, which allows us to keep multiple daily backups of your files and databases.
