Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any website hosted in a cloud hosting account on our end since not only does it compress info significantly better than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a great deal of CPU processing time, that is not a problem for our platform due to the fact that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backup copies much more rapidly and on less disk space, so we will have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not affect the performance of the servers. That way, we could always restore all the content that you may have removed 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 is one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it'll uncompress data much faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. This way, using LZ4 will quicken any kind of site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the great number of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 makes it possible for 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 considerably quicker without loading the servers.
