Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any site hosted in a shared website hosting account with us because not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms used by various other file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backups much more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we shall have multiple daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. This way, we could always restore any content that you could have removed by mistake.
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'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 quicker than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will boost every site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that is provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and have them for a month as they'll take much less space than typical backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
