Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm that we employ on the cloud web hosting platform where your new cloud web hosting account will be created is known as LZ4 and it's applied by the revolutionary ZFS file system which powers the platform. The algorithm is far better than the ones other file systems employ since its compression ratio is much higher and it processes data significantly quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens even faster than info can be read from a hard disk drive. Consequently, LZ4 improves the performance of each Internet site located on a server which uses the algorithm. We take full advantage of LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to produce multiple daily backup copies of the whole content of all accounts and store them for one month. Not only do the backup copies take less space, but their generation does not slow the servers down like it often happens with alternative file systems.
