Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform employs a compression algorithm identified as LZ4. The aforementioned is considerably faster and better than any other algorithm you will find, particularly for compressing and uncompressing non-binary data i.e. web content. LZ4 even uncompresses data faster than it is read from a hard drive, which improves the performance of sites hosted on ZFS-based platforms. As the algorithm compresses data very well and it does that quickly, we can generate several backup copies of all the content stored in the shared website hosting accounts on our servers on a daily basis. Both your content and its backups will require reduced space and since both ZFS and LZ4 work very fast, the backup generation will not affect the performance of the web servers where your content will be kept.
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 positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web 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. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate every website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that's provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
