Data Compression in Cloud Web Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that runs on our cloud internet hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any Internet site hosted in a cloud web hosting account with us because not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms employed by various file systems, but also uncompresses data at speeds which 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 for the reason that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. An additional advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to generate backups much more quickly and on reduced disk space, so we shall have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation won't affect the performance of the servers. This way, we could always recover all the content that you may have erased by accident.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's one of the best algorithms out there and positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data at a higher speed than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will speed up any 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 part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for a month as they'll take much less space than typical backups and will be generated much quicker without loading the servers.
