Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud hosting account with us as not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform because it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups faster and on reduced disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover the content that you could have removed by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server 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 website content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data at a faster rate than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will accelerate any kind of website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that is provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
