Data Compression in Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your hosting account will be made employs the revolutionary ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is better in various aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which a variety of other file systems use, but it's also much quicker. The gains are significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Although it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each website hosted on our servers shall be upgraded. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make numerous daily backups of the whole content in each Internet hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy which we have will not be more than several hours old. This is possible as the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not change the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account shall be created on a cloud platform which is run on the innovative ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm named LZ4, that is a lot better than all the other algorithms in terms of compression ratio and speed. The gain is noticeable especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 quicker than other algorithms, but it is also faster in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a HDD. This is the reason why websites running on a platform which uses LZ4 compression perform better because the algorithm is most effective 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 require less space and are generated faster, which allows us to store multiple daily backups of all your files and databases.
