Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your cloud website hosting account is made employs the outstanding ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is superior in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The benefits may be significant in particular on compressible content which includes website files. While it may sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each website hosted on our servers will be boosted. The better and quicker compression rates also make it possible for us to generate a number of daily backups of the full content in each and every web hosting account, so in the event you delete something by mistake, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, to not change the performance of our servers.
