Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud web hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can improve the performance of any site hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our end as not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by various other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This can be done 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 allows us to create backup copies much more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. That way, we can always recover any kind of content that you may have erased by accident.
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 is one of 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 will uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate any kind of website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. The high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, which is provided by the great number of clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for a month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
