Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm that we work with on the cloud hosting platform where your new cloud web hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it is applied by the exceptional ZFS file system which powers the system. The algorithm is greater than the ones other file systems use since its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data significantly quicker. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens faster than info can be read from a hdd. As a result, LZ4 improves the performance of each Internet site stored on a server that uses this algorithm. We take advantage of LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio allow us to produce multiple daily backups of the entire content of all accounts and keep them for a month. Not only do these backup copies take less space, but in addition their generation won't slow the servers down like it often happens with various other file systems.
