Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is named LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our end because not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups at a higher speed and on reduced disk space, so we can have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore all content that you may have deleted by accident.
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's one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will boost any website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, which is provided by the large number of clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 enables us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and have them for a month as they will take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
