Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can boost the performance of any website hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our end as not only does it compress info much better than algorithms employed by other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups more speedily and on lower disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. This way, we can always restore all of the content that you could have removed by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's among the best algorithms out there and certainly the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data a lot faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate every Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for one month as they will take much less space than regular backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
