Data Compression in Web Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your web hosting account is made employs the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter uses is greater in various aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that similar file systems use, but it's also quicker. The gains may be significant especially on compressible content like website files. Even though it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard drive, so the performance of each and every Internet site hosted on our servers shall 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 Internet hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy which we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not influence the performance of the servers.
