Data Compression in Website Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can upgrade the performance of any site hosted in a website hosting account with us since not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but it uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backups much more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always recover any content that you may 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 certainly the best 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 drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will accelerate any kind of Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the large number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they'll take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be created much faster without loading the servers.
