Data Compression in Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is named LZ4. It can boost the performance of any Internet site hosted in a hosting account on our end because not only does it compress info more efficiently than algorithms employed by various file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the HDD reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it allows us to create backup copies much more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't influence the performance of the servers. This way, we can always restore all the content that you could have deleted by mistake.
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's among the best algorithms out there and positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data quicker than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will speed up any kind of website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, which is provided by the great number of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and save them for one month as they will take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be generated considerably quicker without loading the servers.
