Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud web hosting platform is named LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any Internet site hosted in a shared hosting account with us because not only does it compress info much better than algorithms used by alternative file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk 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. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backups a lot faster and on reduced disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. In this way, we could always restore the content that you may have erased by accident.
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's one of the best algorithms out there and certainly 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 disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will speed up any kind of site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, that's provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for one month as they will take a reduced amount of space than typical backups and will be created considerably quicker without loading the servers.
