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 boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end as not only does it compress data much better than algorithms used by various file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that 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 create backups a lot faster 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. That way, we can always recover any content that you could have erased by mistake.
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 is among the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate any Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. This high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that is provided by the multitude of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they will take much less space than typical backups and will be created much more quickly without loading the servers.
