Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated hosting account with our company, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which is behind our advanced cloud web hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is much quicker, particularly when it comes to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed information can be read from a hard drive, so your sites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform since it consists of a lot of clusters working together. In combination with the better performance, you'll also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you will be able to restore any deleted content with a few clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they need considerably less space than standard backups.
