Data Compression in Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is called LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a web hosting account with us since not only does it compress data more efficiently than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to make backup copies at a higher speed and on lower disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we can always recover any content that you may have deleted by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will accelerate any Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for one month as they'll take much less space than typical backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
