Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is called LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a cloud hosting account with us as not only does it compress info much better than algorithms employed by alternative file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This is achieved by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform due to the fact that 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 less disk space, so we shall have several daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not change the performance of the servers. That way, we could always recover all of the content that you could have removed by mistake.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which 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 definitely 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 disk drive if it were uncompressed. Thus, using LZ4 will speed up every Internet site that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 enables us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for a month as they'll take a smaller amount of space than typical backups and will be generated much more quickly without loading the servers.
