Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any website hosted in a cloud hosting account with us since not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backup copies much quicker and on less disk space, so we will have a couple of daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always recover any content that you may have erased by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which 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 definitely the most efficient 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. Thus, using LZ4 will quicken any website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that is provided by the large number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for one month as they will take much less space than typical backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
