Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system which runs on our cloud hosting platform is named LZ4. It can enhance the performance of any site hosted in a shared website hosting account with us because not only does it compress info more effectively than algorithms used by various other file systems, but it also uncompresses data at speeds which are higher than the hard disk reading speeds. This can be done by using a great deal of CPU processing time, which is not a problem for our platform considering that it uses clusters of powerful servers working together. A further advantage of LZ4 is that it enables us to make backups much more rapidly and on lower disk space, so we can have a couple of daily backups of your files and databases and their generation will not influence the performance of the servers. This way, we could always restore any kind of content that you could have erased 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 positively the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data a lot faster than the same data can be read from a hard disk drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will quicken every Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires a lot 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 keep them for a month as they will take a reduced amount of space than typical backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
