Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is known as LZ4. It can supercharge the performance of any site hosted in a shared website hosting account with us because not only does it compress data much better than algorithms employed by other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds that are higher than the hard disk drive reading speeds. This can be done by using a lot of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform since it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. One more advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to create backup copies more speedily and on reduced disk space, so we can have several daily backups of your databases and files and their generation won't change the performance of the servers. This way, we can always recover all content that you could have removed by accident.
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 best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a higher speed than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will boost any kind of Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that is provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backups of your content every day and have them for one month as they will take a smaller amount of space than standard backups and will be generated much faster without loading the servers.
